A Sports massage isn't just for athletes. A client with range of motion issues or people with injuries, soft tissue aches, or chronic pain can benefit.
This is a type of Swedish massage that stimulates circulation, reduces muscle stiffness and improve relaxation by reducing heart rate and blood pressure.
The types of sports massage include -
- Pre-performance or pre-athletic event massage
- Post-event massage
- Restorative for flexibility and range of motion
- Rehabilitative for faster recovery from injury
The purpose is to focus on a problem area rather than giving a full-body relaxing massage.
