Sports massage was developed to help athletes prepare their bodies for optimal performance, recover after a big event, or function well during training.

The massage therapist generally concentrates on a specific problem area that you present, usually associated with some sort of sports activity, such as running, tennis, or golf.

A sports massage is a good choice if you have a specific problem—a tender knee from running, range of movement, tone, symmetry, balance of muscle and quality of posture.

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

This is ideal for clients who are active and looking to stay fit and injury-free.
