Sports Masssage Therapy

Sports massage is not only for the elite athlete but also has its benefits for the recreational enthusiast as well. Sports massage helps athletes prepare for optimal performance, recover after an event, and maximize training results. Sports massage can be beneficial to those with injuries, chronic pain, and/or restricted range of motion.

For high-end athletes, massage is commonly accepted as part of the regimen which the athlete uses to keep in shape. Sports massage eases sore muscles, stretches tight muscles and tendons to keep them flexible and strong, and relaxes the athlete so that he or she stays emotionally as well as physically healthy. Sports massage can also be used to address the results of strain; runners, for example, might receive sports massage which focuses specifically on their feet and legs.
