Sports massage is manual therapy that manipulates soft tissues to relieve muscular tightness and strains. A variety of massage techniques involving applying pressure using thumbs, hands or elbows are used to provide moderate to deep massage strokes to manipulate soft tissues, with the technique adapted to suit the area of the body needing attention.

Despite its name, sports massage is not limited to sporty people. It is typically used to relieve sports injuries, but the same injuries can also result from occupational or vocational demands and stresses or physical hobbies.


The main benefits of a sports massage are:

  • Relieving muscle tension, which often causes limited flexibility

  • Increasing tissue elasticity

  • Improving circulation
