Sports Massage

Sports massage is sometimes known as Soft Tissue Therapy and can help both athletes and non-athletes alike. If you have any discomfort or tension in your muscles or have a soft tissue injury (such as a muscular sprain or strain) sports massage will be able to help. These are some of the many benefits that sports massage can have:

  • Reduces tension in muscles
  • Improves muscle quality
  • Prevents injury
  • Speeds up recovery after injury
  • Improves circulation of the blood which helps deliver oxygen to the muscles and remove waste products.
  • Improves flexibility
  • Reduces scar tissue
  • Promotes emotional well being
  • Reduces pain to aching muscles
  • Improves lymphatic drainage

Ridgeway Fitness and Health particularly encourages regular massage aimed at the prevention of injuries, and deep tissue massage as a form of stress reduction with the aim of improving both emotional and physical well being at work and at home.
