WHAT IS SPORT MASSAGE THERAPY?

Generally, sports massage is a preventive therapy that addresses muscle symmetry, tone, and balance, as well as range of motion. Sports Massage Therapist manipulate soft tissue to reduce pain and tension and improve muscle condition and range of motion.  When analyzing and treating a person’s injury or symptoms, a Sport Massage Therapist studies root causes carefully, as an injury to one part of the body may be connected to another. This therapy often pairs massage with complimentary stretching and movement.
