It is being used for massage work on players in first division football, rugby, cricket, swimming, ice-hockey, softball, track athletics, rowing and on jockeys - and these are the ones we know about!

It reduces the body's acidity and has a tonic effect on the body's circulatory system.

Another reason why therapists use the Sports blend, even those who are not practising Sports Massage, is that it has a lemony/leathery scent - making it neither herbal or floral and so excellent for use on male and female clients without the issue of a 'female' or 'male' scent.
Manuka essential oil comes from New Zealand and has a long history of use by the Maori people, particularly for bronchitis, rheumatism and similar conditions. It is sometimes called the New Zealand Ti-tree, but it has properties which Ti-tree does not. It is antiviral, antifungal and highly bactericidal across a wide spectrum, and an excellent antiseptic for use on the skin. It is also a good analgesic, and particularly helpful for muscular pain.
