Sports massage consists of specific components designed to reduce injuries, such as alleviating inflammation and providing a warm-up for amateur and professional athletes before, during, after, and within their training regimens.
Massage can help you prepare for a competitive event. A pre-event massage is brief and invigorating, usually lasting, 15-20 minutes. It is given within an hour before the sporting event, through the clothes.
Post-event massage will be calming and relaxing with the goal of easing pain and soreness and reducing inflammation, also lasting 15-20 minutes and through the clothes. Post-event massage can bring blood and oxygen to tense areas and flush out metabolic waste products built up during heavy muscle use.
