    Sports Massage - Full back or part of, e.g. legs.

    This entails a variety of different techniques used to release tension and promote relaxation of the muscles. The massage will improve flexibility and the range of motion, and also help prevent any further or future injury.

    Techniques commonly used:

    (A) NMT – Neuro Muscular Technique

    Using trigger points, this stimulates the release of endorphins, the body’s natural painkiller, and provokes a reflex in the nervous system which aids muscle relaxation. 

    (B) SCS – Strain/counterstrain with NMT

    The major benefit of this technique is its effect on relieving protective muscle spasm that develops around injured areas.

    (C) MET – Muscle Energy Technique

    This is a form of stretching that involves resistive movement to stretch muscles. It hnhiits muscle spindles and golgi tendon organs to allow for increased flexibility.


    (D) CTM – Connective Tissue Manipulation

    This is a form of stretching that releases fluids trapped between the muscle and its fascia. The benefits of this technique are increased pliability and movement of the muscle; reduces scar tissue and adhesions in the muscle and between the muscle and its fascia.

    (E) STR – Soft Tissue Release

    This technique improves flexibility in a specific area of the muscle or tendon. It can be used to pinpoint the area of stiffness in an otherwise flexible muscle when a normal stretch will not do.
