Sports Massage

sports massage

Sports massage is a hands-on technique used by our therapists at Archview Physiotherapy Clinic, Ranelagh. It involves applying pressure to your muscles by using different stroke techniques in a kneading-like motion. This form of massage can be highly beneficial to many people. There is a common misconception that this only applies to professional athletes. This could not be any more misleading! You can enjoy the many benefits even if you do not play any sports. In fact, if your role involves a lot of sitting down, a sports massage might be the very thing you need!
