INJURY REHABILITATION / SPORTS MASSAGE
Sports Massage is an integrative modality designed to help athletes throughout a variety of training phases. Within this modality the student is educated on several sports massage techniques: pre-event massage, post-event massage, flexibility programs, and maintenance massage.
Sports massage was designed for athletes, but is useful for anyone with chronic pain, injury or range-of-motion issues.
Sports massage was originally developed to help athletes prepare their bodies for optimal performance, recover after a big event, or function well during training. Sports massage emphasizes prevention and healing of injuries to the muscles and tendons.
But you don’t have to be in the Olympics to benefit from sports massage. Sports massage is also good for people with injuries, chronic pain or restricted range of motion. The massage therapist generally concentrates on a specific problem area.
