“Sports massage isn’t just for athletes, it can also help to relieve many day-to-day problems that anyone can experience, such as desk work or car driving causing lower back pain.  Sports massage can be performed before activity for a stimulating effect or after activity to help release muscle spasms and knotted tissue, remove toxins and increase flexibility incorporating elements of Swedish massage and deep tissue massage.”
