Sports massage

Sports massage is a type of massage therapy that focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue.
Description

Practitioners use their forearms, elbows, fingertips and knuckles as well as their hands in order to break-up adhesions. These bands of rigid tissue can cause pain and inflammation, and restrict movement and circulation in muscle tissue. 

Sports massage manipulation can be uncomfortable but muscular flexibility will improve as muscle stiffness reduces. Muscular knots form ‘trigger points’ (small areas of spasm within the muscle) which cause referred pain in different locations, your therapist will work on these to speed recovery and break down scar tissue thus reducing inflammation.

 

Regular treatments can prevent illness and injuries. Zöe is capable of strong sports massage techniques to alleviate torsion in the musculature.
