Sports massage is a form of bodywork geared toward participants of all levels in athletics. It is used to help prevent injuries, to prepare the body for athletic activity and maintain it in optimal condition, and to help athletes recover from workouts and injuries.
Injury massage is to deal with any dysfunctional areas or problems in the soft-tissues of the body. Used for patients who are recovering from injuries or surgical procedures to help speed healing and recovery while concentrating on muscle rehabilitation.
Therapeutic Massage involves manipulation of the body tissues to relieve tension, pain and to promote relaxation. Also includes the holding of positions which stretches the soft tissues and applies pressure to the body. This improves flexibility and reduces muscle tension.
