What is sports massage like?
Sports massage is a much more dynamic and intense type of massage that incorporates Swedish massage techniques, particularly kneading, percussion, and vibration movements.
The purpose of sports massage is to prepare the body for intense physical activity and facilitate muscle relaxation after exercise. This promotes more effective muscle regeneration and reduces the risk of injuries. Additionally, sports massage improves muscle performance, allowing athletes to achieve better results during training.
Sports massage reduces muscle spasms, stiffness, and associated pain. It helps to release tight, adhered muscles.
However, sports massage is not limited to athletes. It can also benefit individuals with a sedentary lifestyle by helping to release tight muscles caused by lack of movement.
