Massage therapy has a long history in different cultures around the world.
In Sports Rehab we offer massage and sport massage therapy.
In traditional massage, a trained and certified medical professional (massage therapist) treats the soft tissues of the body. This approach induces relaxation, reduces stress, mitigates the tension of the body, and increases the general well-being.
The focus of sports massage therapy instead is to foster performance of the athlete through a faster recovery. From serious athletes to weekend warriors, adding elements of sports massage between trainings and matches, can enhance flexibility, help to recover from competition and minimize some injuries risk.
Sport massage is important in all phases of a competition: it increases the training effectiveness, loosens the muscles, and supports the recovery process.
