Massage – Sports

Sports massage involves the application of massage to meet the performance needs of the athlete or physically active person. A thorough knowledge is required of the movements, exercises, injuries and training protocols involved in team and individual sports. It may include pre-event, inter-event, post-event and maintenance massage and may employ a variety of massage techniques. Many therapists specialise in this field and are encouraged to have a sports massage diploma to work with elite sports people.
