Sports massage is a specific type of massage generally used before, during and after athletic events.
The main purpose of sports massage therapy is to eliminate lactic acid build up in soft tissue during physical activity. Sports massage increases blood flow to muscles, this preparing them for activity. Muscles that are “warmd up” are less prone to injury eg cramp and there is a powerful relaxation effect which is important in muscle function and athletic performance.
Sports massage can be used pre sport, to prepare the athlete for peak performance and to prevent injury, during sport to clear waste products, drain away fatigue and post game to promote flexibility.
