Sports massage is an alternative therapy used to alleviate pain and restore muscle tone. The technique was originally developed to serve athletes as a way to prevent and relieve injuries, but both athletes and non-athletes can gain physiological and psychological benefits from receiving it.
- Stimulation of the blood, lymph and nutrients flow to the muscles
- Reduction of muscle pain, tension and swelling
- Increases the recovery rate post training
Sports massage is recommended for injury prevention, pre and post exercise/training as well as for maintenance.
