soft tissue therapy

Medical definition of soft tissue: body tissue that is not hardened or calcified. Specifically: tissue (such as tendon, muscle, skin, fat, fluids, and fascia) that typically connects, supports, or surrounds bone and internal organs. (Merriam-Webster)

Soft Tissue Therapy is hands-on bodywork using different techniques in order to assess, treat, and rehabilitate minor injuries on soft tissue and/or maintain soft tissue structures to enable optimal function. It helps to relieve pain, to decrease stiffness and dysfunction, as well as to improve range of motion. 

Soft Tissue Therapy has a wide range of benefits for everyone. Athletes have been using the advantages of massage therapy for a long time. But you don’t have to be a sportsperson to benefit. Often our work and lifestyle alone place increased demands on our physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing. Soft Tissue Therapy will have a positive impact on your performance whether in sport, at work or at home.
