Sports massage is a massage therapy technique designed specifically for athletes or those who engage in activities like running, cycling, hiking, swimming, dancing, tennis, strength training and/or aerobics. Sports massage readies the muscles prior to a workout or event and assists the body in recovering from the wear-and-tear and minor injuries that naturally occur with an active lifestyle.
- Reduced chance of injury
- Improved range of motion and muscle flexibility, resulting in improved power and performance
- Shortened recovery time between workouts
