Sports Massage

Sports massage is specifically designed for people who are involved in sports or  physical activity. But you don't have to be an athlete to have one-it's commonly  used by people who are active and work out often. The focus isn't so much on relaxation but on preventing and treating injury and enhancing athletic performance through soft tissue manipulation.  Although relieving pain and muscle tension in itself will be a relaxing experience.  Sports massage utilizes a combination of techniques. The strokes are generally designed to penetrate deeper into the muscles than Swedish massage while still being careful not to misalign joints.  Facilitated movement and range of motion techniques are commonly used.
