Soft Tissue

Whilst sports massage is used to relieve muscle tension, therapists can use a number of different soft tissue release techniques to achieve their treatment goals. These include Assisted Stretching, Trigger Point Release (relief of “trigger points” or “knots”within muscles), and Muscle Energy Techniques (MET) to name a few. Muscle energy techniques use targeted contraction of muscles and stretches to increase the range of movement at a joint.
