Pre- or post-race sports massage

This massage shares the pain relief goals of deep tissue massage, but the modalities used are more specific to your activities.  Pre-race?  Post-race? In between a race, or athletic event?  Rather than a relaxing massage in which you can rest your mind, for a sports massage you will need to participate with the massage.

Resistance exercises can enhance pressure point massage, and ‘muscle shortening’ or therapeutic positioning of your body can promote relaxation.  This is a massage, but it includes manipulations and assisted stretching to help you either perform better or recover faster.
