It promotes relaxation and relieves a range of conditions including: stress, pain and muscle stiffness associated with athletic injuries, joint, back and neck problems, arthritis, fibromyalgia, muscle spasms, chronic inflammation, and whiplash.
Sports Massage is the manipulation and stretching of muscle, and connective tissues to enhance movement, flexibility and performance.
