Sports Massage

Sports Massage

Inspired by therapeutic Swedish massage, sports massage incorporates additional elements focused on physical performance.


The objectives of sports massage are multiple:

  • Preparing athletes for exertion
  • Improving performance
  • Facilitating faster recovery
  • Reducing the risk of injuries
  • Treating injuries and their consequences

Sports massage can be performed at two different times:

  • Before an event or physical activity (preparatory massage)
  • After an event or physical activity (recovery massage)

Sports massage techniques typically involve a combination of deep tissue massage, stretching, and joint mobilization. The therapist may target specific muscle groups or areas of the body based on the individual’s sport or activity. The massage aims to enhance flexibility, increase range of motion, alleviate muscle tension, and promote optimal physical functioning.

Sports massage is commonly sought by athletes, sports enthusiasts, and individuals engaged in rigorous physical training. It can be a valuable component of a training program, helping athletes perform at their best. It can also help in preventing injuries and can also  allow a faster recovery  when injured.
