Sports massage is a great way to relax and do something good for your body. It is a great remedial approach for various ailments such as tennis elbow, chronic back pain or sciatica. Its primary function is to interact with the involved structure, be it muscle, ligament or facsia, and break it down using deep and slow forces.
If the problem still persists, the client is educated upon how to have better posture or active exercises that will relieve the problem by either activating the antagonist or the involved muscle itself.
Sports massage usually costs a little bit more then a deep tissue massage because the therapist has undergone more training. Both massages can be quite similar but sports massage tends to be more remedially based and localised in its efforts whilst deep tissue is a more relaxing and holistic treatment.
