Adding vigour and healing injuries
Sport massage in contrast to relaxation massage is more vigorous to stimulate circulation allowing greater blood into the muscles for optimal performance. After exercise, the massage will assist in the removal of toxins (lactic acids) that build up in the muscles during exercise.
- Warms muscles prior to exercise
- Relaxes and restores muscle function after exercise
- Assists recovery from injury.
Aside from these points, this is simply a variation on any massage.
