Sports Massage

A pre-game sports massage is when muscle-stimulating techniques are used to increase blood flow and warm-up areas of the body ready for an event.
 
A post-game sports massage is completely different from a pre-game massage. Particularly if performed within hours of the game or activity. Light to therapeutic techniques are used to lengthen out muscle fibres, ease aches and pains and help waste and toxins eradicate from the body. A post-game Massage therapist needs to be aware of any inflammatory areas in the body from the game or activity.
