Sports Massage is the management, manipulation and rehabilitation of soft tissues of the body including muscles, tendons and ligaments. It is applicable not just to athletes but to everybody.
Deep-tissue techniques, Swedish style massage and stretching can be employed to assist anyone wishing to guard against, or recover from, a soft tissue injury and maintain healthy supple muscles.
Remedial massage is part of sports massage practice and aims to remedy musculo-skeletal problems. Massage techniques are used to help correct postural difficulties or manage acute injuries, unwanted muscular tension and chronic dysfunction arising from old injuries.
Using warm basalt stones as part of a massage promotes healthy relaxed muscles. Heat from the stones can be an effective tool in aiding impaired muscle function arising from adhesions and knots, and can aid a speedy recovery from some types of injury.
