SPORTS MASSAGE - Nicola Fannin
About Sports Massage
Sports massage is a form of deep tissue massage involving the manipulation of soft tissue to benefit a person engaged in regular physical activity. Soft tissue is connective tissue that has not hardened into bone and cartilage; it includes skin, muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia (a form of connective tissue that lines and ensheathes the other soft tissues). Sports massage is designed to assist in correcting problems and imbalances in soft tissue that are caused from repetitive and strenuous physical activity, stress and trauma. The application of sports massage, prior to and after exercise, may enhance performance, aid recovery and prevent injury.
