Sports massage covers pre-event, post-event and intramural massage. There is also sports related massage where, depending on the sport, particular muscle groups are targeted.
Sports massage is great for prevention of injury as well as recovery from high performance activity. It helps to milk lactic acid and metabolic waste from muscles and peripheral tissues. Techniques used are effleurage, petrissage, tapotement, “kneading”, “squeezing”, “wringing”, cross fiber frictions, trigger point therapy and proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation (which is an active/passive stretching technique).
Fees for a 1 hr session start from $80 depending on the therapist.
