APNT Core Therapies
- Sports Massage
Sports massage is the application of advanced massage techniques for use with the prevention, maintenance and rehabilitation of sporting injuries. Sports massage therapists are skilled in the assessment of musculoskeletal injuries and know how and when to refer clients for specialist advice.
Sports massage helps alleviate the stress and tension that builds up in the body’s soft tissues during physical activity. The massage will help prepare the athlete for peak performance, drain away fatigue, relieve swelling, reduce muscle tension, promote flexibility and prevent injuries.
It is also effective on injuries not incurred through sports.
