Sports Massage Bedford has a fundamentally different approach from all other forms of massage. It is deep tissue massage designed to assist in correcting problems and imbalances in soft tissue, i.e. muscles, tendons and ligaments, often caused by repetitive, strenuous physical activity or trauma. Generally speaking, it`s simple, most people who have a sports massage on a regular basis are less prone to injuries. You also have to take into account the mental benefit of sports massage. You cannot put a price on feeling fit and ready for an event, it will really give you an edge.
I use different techniques to manipulate soft tissue, to relax it, repair it or simply maintain it. I have a very diverse range of clients from elite athletes to people who do little of no exercise.
If you are not into sport and exercise you can still benefit from a sports massage. I have clients who love knitting but get aches and pains in their arms and shoulders as a result. I can use techniques to relax the problem muscle or tendons and demonstrate stretching techniques to ease the issue.
On the other hand I have many clients who do exercise and train and compete who have regular maintenance massage. Occasionally they will need injury treatment.

This led me to study for a diploma in anatomy and physiology at Bedford College. With this….READ THE REST OF KEN’S STORY
