Sports Massage is a type of massage designed for highly active people who engage in  athletics. Engaging in sports is harsh on the body and can often lead to injuries in both  the short and long term. Sports Massage enhances performance and prolongs a sports  career by helping to prevent injury, reduce pains and swelling in the body, relax the      mind, increase flexibility, and dramatically improve recovery rates. Sports Massage is  also highly effective in aiding the rapid recovery of an athlete from an injury by    encouraging greater kinesthetic awareness and in turn promoting the body’s natural    immune function.
