Sports massage is a slightly different modality from swedish massage. For the most part you still get all the benefits of relaxation from a normal massage. However, the application of this particular modality is done differently and for different reasons. Sports Massage typically is done Pre or post event.
- Pre Event Massage is used to assist an athlete or participant in preparing for a competition or workout at an event site.
- Post Event Massage is applied to induce circulation and bring fresh oxygenated blood to exhausted muscles, reduce soreness and promote healing.
