Sports Massage is a type of massage that is used to work on athletes of all levels of training from the weekend warrior to professional sports teams. Graeme Danziger now offers professional Sports Massage therapy at the Hout Bay and Seapoint practices.
Sports massage is not a specific technique, but applying whatever type of massage that you know to athletes. It requires extra training in anatomy and physiology as well as working with injuries. A sports massage therapist will need to have an understanding of how the body moves and works during the many sporting events.
Sports Massage can be applied:
- Pre-Event – Before the actual sports event
- Post-Event- After the actual sports event
During Training for achieving maximum performance and preventing injuries.
To help heal injuries and get athletes back on the road faster.
