What is a sports/remedial massage?

A sports massage is carried out before or after a physical activity, e.g. running, in order to restore normal function to the treated part of the body. An example of this is a massage of the legs before a marathon. This is done for reasons of recovery or improved performance.

A remedial massage somewhat differs in that it is used to treat an injury with the aim of speeding up the healing process, restoring the injured area to normal. It is used to treat strains, sprains, bruising and fractures as well as removing blockages and scar tissue.

Remedial massage works very well on patients suffering from repetitive strain injury.
