Sports massage is specifically tailored for different sporting events or for a particular sport. Depending on the level of, or stage of training, such as pre-event, post-event, injury rehabilitation, during the building phase, maintenance phase, or in a tapered phase, the treatment is different for each person.
Sports massage is NOT a relaxing form of massage and can often be quite forceful. The benefits include...
reduced stress and tension of muscles and soft tissues (tendons, ligaments, fibrous tissue, skin, blood vessels, fascia, and synovial membranes)
reduced recovery time after an injury (acute or chronic condition)
reduced recovery time after a sport event or exercise
reduced possibility of injury
Sports massage is highly beneficial, not only for professional athletes but also for anyone who exercises regularity and who wants to maintain their well-being.
