Sports massage is specifically tailored to sporting injuries and ailments. It involves the use of thumbs, knuckles, hands, forearms. Also elbows therapeutically manipulate the soft tissues to bring about repair.
Massage techniques are applied to the muscles, tendons, fascia, ligaments and skin. It is not a relaxing style of massage and can be quite vigorous at times. Sports massage is not only utilised by professional sports people and trainers or people that exercise heavily; it is also of benefit to anyone that is physically active. Even if you are only performing a mild exercise routine such as regular walking sports massage is of good value.
