Sports massage emphasizes prevention and healing of injuries to the muscles and tendons and stimulates circulation of blood and lymph fluids.
Sports massage is great for people with injuries and chronic pain. Sports massage generally concentrates on a specific problem area.
There are four types of sports massages:
* pre-event sports massage -- a short, stimulating massage 15 - 45 minutes before the event. It is directed toward the parts of the body that will be involved in the exertion.
* post-event sports massage -- given within an hour or two of the event, to normalize the body's tissues.
* restorative sports massage -- given during training to allow the athelete to train harder and with less injury.
* rehabilitative sports massage -- aimed at alleviating pain due to injury and returning the body to health.
Please enquire if you require any of these specific types of sport massage
