Sports and Remedial Massage
Sport massage and remedial massage is a deep treatment that loosens up tight muscles, breaks up adhesions in muscle fibre and generally focuses on restoring and/or maintaining the full function of your muscles. It can help your muscle perform better and prevent injury. Muscle injuries will often heal more effectively with the help of sport massage. If you have tight neck, calf muscle or similar issues or if you are recovering from injury several weekly sessions would be ideal. If you are fit and healthy, a monthly massage session will help you to stay that way.

Sport massage has many potential benefits. Its primary aim is to restore full function to muscles and other soft tissues. This can simply mean easing the tension that has built up in your shoulders over long office hours or restoring maximum performance to an over-trained muscle group of an athlete.
As a client you can always tell the therapist if a manipulation causes too much discomfort. The purpose of sport massage is to restore the full potential of your muscle system, to help relieve problems and prevent injury. It also, as any other massage, improves circulation and lymphatic flow, which brings more general health benefits. Some of its techniques involve slightly uncomfortable pressure on muscle tissue.
Sport massage has a calming effect, but is not primarily a relaxing massage. You will find however that its effects can often be more lasting than with other types of massage..
