sports massage
This type of massage is very valuable for people who push their bodies to the limit. Athletes, dancers, and musicians all are at risk of repetitive or over-use injuries. Consequently, they need to pay attention to the first signs of stress, strain and pain so that training, competing, and performing can continue at optimal levels.  Sports massage utilizes a blend of techniques to address these repetitive stress issues and/or injuries. This type of massage can be done pre- and post-event. Pre-event massage involves faster strokes, stretching and warming of the tissue to prepare for activity. Post-event  massage focuses on muscle fatigue, restoring flexibility, and preventing injury by reducing pain and swelling.
