Sports Massage Therapy is ideal for dealing with injuries or as a preventative treatment to deal with muscle and connective tissue health. It also addresses a range of motion issues, muscle tone, muscle symmetry, balance and the quality of the individual’s posture. It is also used to release tension, reduce pain, restore range of motion and to promote good overall muscle conditioning. The massage therapist achieves this by moving muscles, tendons, ligaments, and connective tissue to achieve the desired effect.
