Playing any form of sport is a fun and healthy way to keep fit, however, athletes are at a much higher risk of injury than your average gym goer. During intense competitions athletes often push their bodies to extreme limits without realising that our bodies have a range in which they can perform, pushing the body to cross those limits can result in serious injuries. Our remedial massage therapists working at Melbourne Natural Therapies use remedial massage and other techniques to treat a variety of injuries and ailments that may occur as a result of athletic training, exercise, or over-use.
