Sports Massage is a special form of massage and is typically used before, during, and after athletic events. The purpose of the massage is to prepare the athlete for peak performance, to drain away fatigue, to relieve swelling, to reduce muscle tension, to promote flexibility and to prevent injuries. This technique is also used on non-athletes who have similar needs due to injury from subtle to severe.
HOT STONE THERAPY
It is a technique using smooth stones that have been heated to warm the muscle for a deep massage effect without the discomfort of deep tissue. Although the use of hot stone during massage is great for stress relief in the mind, which it seems we could all use, it is also good to relieve aches and pains due to tightness in the muscles as well. Pain or an achy feeling caused by tension in the muscle is one of the most common issues people have. Tension is a tightening of the muscle. With the heat of the stones, it will release the tension and bring relief.
