What is Sports Massage?

Our specialty, sports massage, is a large category that encompasses several other massage categories and concepts. Various techniques are used according to the needs of the athlete and important elements are factored in such as training, coming-up events and state of mind. Moreover, the massage therapist is always mindful of sports injuries that particular sports make us prone to; in that effect, the massage targets specific muscles, tendons and stretches that are necessary in the prevention or healing process of specific sports injuries.
