What is Sports massage?

Sports massage manipulations change depending on the training phase of the athlete. In preparation for a competition, this massage works with techniques which bring flexibility and tone to muscular fibres, so as to reduce the possibility of muscular trauma and to prepare the athlete for the strain of the competition. During the contest, manipulations which reduce lactic acid in the muscles and help to remove cellular metabolites are performed, in order to reduce muscular tension. After the competition techniques which help to recover from the effort, to bring back the natural flexibility and to prevent trauma caused by muscle strain are executed; these techniques are combined with passive and active stretching exercises.
