What is Sports Massage and how can it help?
Sports massage is used by our qualified sports massage therapists at Core Clinic. Sports massage is used by millions of athletes all over the world to keep their muscles and surrounding soft tissues in good working order.
Massage helps prevent injury and can aid recovery making it an essential part of an athletes regime.
