What is sports massage?
Sports massage is based on classical massage and it is suitable for working and elderly people, as well as for athletes. Massage relaxes muscles and improves blood flow and metabolism. It also improves the elasticity of muscles and tendons. Massage relieves pain and it has positive effects on stress. Massage can be an excellent addition to an athlete’s or exerciser’s muscle maintenance.
Sports massage is well suited for athletes and so-called ‘ordinary’ people, regardless of age. Sports massage is more efficient compared to classical massage. More versatile grasps are used and the treatment’s strength is regulated to achieve the best result possible. The training and competition programs are also considered when evaluating the need for athlete’s massage impact.
