What is Sports Massage?

Sports Massage is used to maintain or restore the athlete to optimal condition and aids in injury prevention and the recovery and rehabilitation process. The overall goal of Sports Massage is to enhance athletic performance. It is this goal that makes Sports Massage different from other massage modalities. Athletes tend to repetitively use one muscle group more than others. This may result in hypertrophy, changes in strength and movement patterns, connective tissue formation, and compensation patterns in the rest of the body. These factors contribute to the muscle dysfunctions that often develop in athletes.

Whether you’re an amateur or a professional athlete or play sport on a casual or full-time basis, Sports Massage will assist with your overall health and well-being and improve your performance.
