SPORTS MASSAGE

Sports massage is used to influence repair, recovery and injury prevention not only in the professional athlete but anybody who puts excess stress on their muscles on a day to day basis. For example, someone who sits at a computer all day and ends up slumping over the keyboard will in time potentially end up with very tight and painful neck and shoulder muscles. Sports massage treatment will help to relieve this problem and at Billericay Sports Therapy we use many different techniques, including the unique Be Activated method to help prevent it in the future.

Sports massage and Be activated techniques not only help the repair and recovery of muscle but keeps your muscles in good condition, allowing optimal range of movement, flexibility and power output.
