The techniques with this massage are similar to those used in both Swedish and deep tissue massages, but the focus is in the special needs of an athlete. This type of massage can be effective for both the professional athlete as well as the weekender. Sports massage can incorporate pre-event massage that works on warming up the muscles as well as reducing stress that goes before a competition.
Post-event massage aids in speed recovery after an intense physical workout, and eliminate the wastes from the body. This technique of massage can be greatly enhanced by drinking plenty of water after workouts or competition.
