Sports Massage Therapy is geared toward athletes of every kind, from professional athletes to weekend joggers.
Athletes have realized that sports massage promotes flexibility, improves endurance, reduces fatigue, helps prevent injuries and prepares their body and mind for optimal performance.
It can also help to enhance pre-event preparation and reduce recovery time for maximum performance during training or after an event.
The particulars of the sports massage technique are specific to the athlete’s sport of choice. Modalities used for sports massage are but not limited to:
- Swedish massage,
- Cross-fiber friction massage,
- Deep tissue massage,
- Manual lymph drainage,
- and trigger point therapy.
