What is sports and remedial massage therapy?
Despite the name, sports and remedial massage is not just for sports people, though they can benefit too. Anyone experiencing targeted muscle pain should consider deep tissue massage therapy. Rather than focusing on problem areas like many other massages, sports and remedial massage therapy aims to heal the entire body. As such it can address the root of an issue as well as healing surface symptoms. This enables clients to enjoy relief from a variety of both recent an longstanding injuries and pain.
