Sports massage has become an integral part of the new athletic regimen from sports medicine clinics and college training rooms, to professional locker rooms and Olympic training. More and more people are realizing that a complete workout routine includes exercise as well as caring for the wear-and-tear and minor injuries that naturally occur with strenuous movement. The physiological and psychological benefits of massage complement a total conditioning program. Sports massage therapy frequently includes one or more of the following techniques: Deep Swedish Massage, Compression Massage, Cross-Fiber Massage, Trigger Point/Tender Point Massage or Lymphatic Massage.
