What is a Sports Massage?
Sports massage is the application of a variety of soft tissue techniques to enhance athletic performance. Sports massage includes pre-event, post-event, fine tuning or conditioning and rehabilitation.
Basically, massage can be an adjunct in three ways;
- Enabling the athlete to recover from injury more rapidly and completely with less likelihood of chronic problems.
- Reducing excessive muscle tone by maintaining muscles in their best state of relaxation, flexibility and nutrition.
- Reducing muscle soreness, enabling muscles to recover more quickly and to train at a higher level, thus pushing back the fine line between maximum training and over training.
