What is Sports Massage?

Sports Massage to the back

Sports massage is a form of soft tissue manipulation. Massage works on the connective tissue within the body such as skin, muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia (basically everything that isn’t bone or cartilage).
At Pentons Performance Therapy massage is an integral part of every treatment, techniques such as deep tissue massage, connective tissue manipulation, soft tissue release and METS (muscle energy techniques). Hot stones are used in conjunction with traditional massage techniques to enhance the healing effects and enable you to relax and enjoy the experience.

Although Sports massage can be uncomfortable it should never be painful. Hypertonic muscles and trigger points can cause irritation, especially when being worked upon, however our experience and expertise means we are able to find a balance between manipulating soft tissue to ease tension and correct problems without causing an unbearable amount of pain. We communicate regularly throughout treatment to ensure an effective and comfortable treatment allowing you to walk away feeling revitalised.
