What is Sports Massage?
Sports massage is a deep tissue massage which aims to massage the muscles, stretch out the fascia, and work to ease tightness and restrictions in muscles. This type of massage works by stimulating blood flow to muscles and surrounding tissues. Massage is often used to ease muscle pain caused by muscle imbalances, postural strains and various type of sports injuries. In osteopathic treatment, we often complement treatments with some additional deep tissue massage such as a sports massage.
