Sports Massage is a specialized form of Swedish Massage that we offer at Massage Therapy Center Palo Alto. It focuses on enhancing athletic performance, boosting endurance, and facilitating post-event recovery. It especially benefits professional and amateur athletes, exercise enthusiasts, dancers, and performers.
Sports massage practitioners work on the whole body, to keep it in optimum physical condition by increasing blood circulation (nutrient delivery), lymph circulation (toxin removal), and promoting deep relaxation. They also pay particular attention to those muscle groups involved in a specific sport or activity to:
- Reduce muscle tightness and fatigue
- Help prevent injuries by increasing flexibility and elasticity in the joints
- Reduce pain and promote faster recovery to injured tissues
