Sports Massage Therapy

Sports Massage was originally developed to help athletes prepare their bodies for optimal performance, recover after a big event, or function well during training. Sports massage emphasizes prevention and healing of injuries to the muscles and tendons. Sports Massage addresses the specific needs of athletes. It can use Swedish massage methods, cross fiber friction, trigger point therapy, stretching methods, etc. It is used during training, and before or after events, to enhance performance and to promote post-injury healing.
