What is Sports Massage? Sports massage is generally using a firmer technique than a therapeutic massage, it is the management, manipulation and rehabilitation of soft tissues of the body whichincludes muscles, ligaments and tendons. How deep the massage is applied depends on the reason for the sports massage & the desires of the recipient. To benefit from a sports massage you do not need to be a sports performer. The benefits can also help relieve many day to day problems that everyone experiences.
After a lengthy career in IT & Telecommunications I happened to chance upon The Academy of Natural Health, a Holistic Massage Training School based in North London.

Very few of us will breeze through our busy lives without experiencing some kind of muscular discomfort or pain. Frustratingly, a trip to the doctor may not produce much more than a prescription for apainkiller and a recommendation to 'take it easy' for a few days. Our bodies do their best to cope with what we throw at them, but we were designed to be mobile hunter gatherers not sat 24/7 in front of a computer screen or playing exhaustive ball games.
