Sports Massage was originally developed to help athletes prepare their bodies for optimal performance, recover after a big event, or function well during training. It emphasizes prevention and healing of injuries to the muscles and tendons . . . but you don't have to be an athlete to benefit from sports massage. It's also great for people with injuries, chronic pain, or restricted range of motion.
This is a type of Swedish Massage that stimulates circulation of blood and lymph fluids. Some Sports Massage movements use trigger point to break down adhesions (knots in the muscles) and increase range of motion.
