Sports massage enhances athletic performance and recovery. The most beneficial times for the professional athlete are pre-event massages at the performance site. The client is fully clothed, and the therapist uses fast-paced and stimulating techniques to speed the blood flow and warm up muscles. The athlete is encouraged to focus on visualizing her success in the upcoming event. Post-event massage is also at the performance site. Again, through the clothes, and this time the aim is to calm and flush toxins and waste products from the body reducing recovery time and enabling an athlete to resume training sooner. Injury recovery is sped up with massage therapy and will improve the healing quality. Athletic taping techniques are often offered and can help prevent injury and protect the athlete from re-injury by limiting the movement in an injured joint to prevent excess or abnormal movement.
