Back Neck & Shoulder - 30 Mins - R360
Sports Massage is the systematic manipulation of soft tissues for improvement or maintenance of athletic performance. Sports massage emphasizes prevention and healing of injuries to the muscles and tendons. It is also good for people with injuries, chronic pain, restricted range of motion, or for office workers with neck and back tension. Sports Massage utilises a number of techniques including deep tissue massage, mobilization, trigger point therapy and myofascial release as well as stretch therapy. Sports massage also focuses on increasing recovery and preventing injury. We focus on releasing tight muscles and breaking down adhesions in the body's tissue.
The benefits of a sports massage are numerous: improved flexibility, reduced risk of injury, and a boosted circulatory system, just to name a few. But bodywork isn’t a one-size-fits all tool, and there are certain things to consider before booking an appointment.
