Sports massage on leg


With Physio Motive

What is sports massage?

Sports massage is a form of deep soft tissue mobilisation that can be applied to athletes and non athletes. Techniques applied include effleurage, kneading, wringing, hacking and trigger pointing. Sports massage helps relieve muscular tension, break down adhesion's, mobilise soft tissues and reduce pain.

We tailor your massage to suit you. We frequently communicate with you during treatment to make sure we use the right pressures and techniques so you get the most out of your treatment.
