Sports Massage

Tuesday, August 5th, 2008

Sports massage is typically administered to athletes that play and suffer from sports injuries and chronic pain, as well as to warm up the muscles before training or a game. It is a form of a Swedish massage designed to focus in on a specific area that has been injured or is causing the athlete problems. This type of massage stimulates the circulation of blood, breaks down knots, increases range of motion and prevents further injury or strain. Athlete’s bodies are required to be in peak physical condition at all times in order to perform at their very best. A tender knee, sore shoulders, a cramp in the leg, or a pulled hamstring could prevent an athlete from performing at an optimal performance level and could increase the chance of further injury if not properly taken care of.
