What is soft tissue therapy
Soft tissue therapy/sports massage is the management, manipulation and rehabilitation of soft tissues of the body including muscles, tendons and ligaments. We use a variety of soft tissue techniques such as massage, myofacial release, trigger point and muscle energy techniques as well as stretching and exercises for you to do at home to address muscular pain, tension or injury.
Injury Rehab & Prehab
Sports massage/soft tissue therapy can help your recovery from soft tissue injuries or surgery. It can help in the treatment and/or alleviation of musculoskeletal pain, improve range of movement, address muscle imbalances, address chronic or acute tension and support your return to a more functional movement post injury as well as helping to improve your general well being.
Work Related Pain & Tension
Sports Massage and soft tissue therapy can help address muscular pain and tension brought on by work, stress or poor posture. It can help relieve stress by providing relief from the tension and aiding relaxation. It can give you a better understanding of your posture and possible triggers in your lifestyle that are contributing to your pain and tension.
Tight and heavy muscles after a training session can start to cause more problems if you are not addressing your recovering correctly. Sports massage is an excellent addition to your recovery plan helping to reduce the risk of injury. Sports massage can help reduce muscle tone, promote blood and lymphatic flow, sedate nerve endings and help in the removal of metabolic waste.
