About Soft Tissue Therapy
Formerly known as Sports & Remedial Massage, it is the treatment of the musculoskeletal system by palpation and manipulation, massage of the superficial and deep muscles and connective tissues, including fascia, tendons, and ligaments.
Treatment should not be painful as this will cause tension and inhibit manipulation. It is the relaxed muscle that responds well. There may be some aching and mild soreness to the tissues the following day, similar to that after exercising.
“A soft tissue therapist – treats the soft tissues. A ‘sport’ cannot be massaged.”
