The techniques are similar to those in remedial and deep tissue massage, but sports massage has been adapted to meet the athlete’s special needs.
Pre-event massage can help warm up muscles and improve circulation before competition, but it can also energize or relax an athlete and help him/her focus on the competition. Post-event massage can help push waste products out of the body and improve recovery.
