Sports massage is specifically suited for physically active individuals. You do not necessarily need to be a professional athlete to use it – it is also popular among active people who often practice sports activities. With this type of massage the main focus is not so much on relaxation but prevention and treatment of traumas, as well as achieving better sports results.
A combination of different techniques is used. The strikes are more intensive than those applied in classical Swedish massage. Stretching is one of the main techniques which helps muscles relaxation and improves flexibility.
