Sports massage is specifically designed for people who are involved in physical activity.
But you don't have to be a professional athlete to have one - it's also used by people
who are active and workout often.
The focus is not on relaxation but on preventing and treating injury and enhancing
athletic performance or returning muscles to optimum function. A combination of techniques
is used and the strokes are generally faster than Swedish massage. Facilitated stretching
is a common technique as it helps to loosen muscles and increase flexibility.
Sessions are usually 30 minutes long although 1 hour sessions are available.
