EV Sports provides specialist sports massage therapy to rehabilitate and prevent injuries by addressing the cause, not just the symptoms.
Sports Massage Therapy is a form of manual therapy to assess, treat, rehabilitate and help prevent soft tissue imbalances and injuries.
These soft tissues can become tight, tense, imbalanced or dysfunctional, which then presents as complaints such as aches, pains, niggles or injuries.
“Sports massage is supposed to hurt”
People say this a lot! Sports Massage is not supposed to hurt, it hurts because the soft tissues I’m working on are not functioning as they should be. This could be because they are tight, weak, overused and/or compensating for another area of the body.
This is why I assess the body as a whole and check the pressure is OK throughout the treatment.
Hi, I’m Emma Shergold and I am a specialist Sports Massage Therapist and Run Coach based in Whiteley, Fareham.
I have always been fascinated by the way the body works, in particular how we move and adapt to different loads and stresses.
This led me initially to establish EV Sports in 2007 after graduating from the London School of Sports Massage (LSSM).
