Sports massage is essentially remedial massage applied according to the active client’s needs.  At times it may be tailored to a particular injury and form part of the rehabilitation of the body.  Certain techniques may be used before an event to stimulate and loosen the muscles, others are applied post-event to relax the muscles, flush out toxins and reduce your recovery time.  However, as with remedial massage, its most valuable role is in prevention rather than ‘cure’.  Whether you are running short distances for fun, dragging yourself to the gym (perhaps less fun!) or training intensively for an event season, you will benefit from regular sports massage as part of your routine
