Sports massage prepares and recharges energy for athletic sports events such as a marathon, triathlons, runners, cyclist and daily exercise. Sports massage therapy is good for improving range of motion. This includes pre-event warm up sports massage and post-event physical recovery. Pre-event sports massage therapy usually consists of faster, calming, and relaxing pressure with joint stretching. The goal of pre-event sports massage is to stimulate blood circulation and to increase oxygen flow to warm up the body and release tension, so the athletes can be more prepared physically and mentally before sports events.
