What is Sports Massage?
Sports massage is a type of massage that is specifically tailored to sporting injuries or ailments.  It can become quite vigorous at times. Contrary to its name, sports massage is not only utilised by professional sportspeople or people that exercise heavily but by all who enjoy it's healing results. 
 
4 types of sports massage

Pre-event: Work done only on muscles about to endure physical event-  short & stimulating massage-30m -1hr light pressure .
Goal: warm & loosen muscles to make more pliable for the event.
Result: Improved performance, decrease injuries & secondary -relax the athlete.
Post-event:
Goal: normalize body’s tissues/muscles geared toward reducing muscle spasms and metabolic build-up that occurs with vigorous exercise.
Result: Recovery after competition involves not only tissue normalization and repair, but also general relaxation and mental calming.
Maintenance massage: one of my most popular massages: very client specific; focused upon clients training, sport & needs. For athletes looking to increase performance & increase competitive edge. Therapist zeros in on particular muscular groups& tissues. this massage is generally done in a series working up to event or during a training period.
Goal: optimize training while lessening the risk of injury, developing adhesions, repetitive motion injuries and muscular soreness/fatigue. Increases flexibility & range of motion. In my opinion - a crucial part of training/ maintaining optimism health.
Rehabilitation: alleviates pain associated with an injury/injuries.
Goal: optimize clients health through reduction of stress in areas surrounding injury, treating area of injury, direct healing and lessen/’direct’ the build-up of adhesions.   Accelerate healing process.
