ITEC sports massage course
Sports massage is the use of massage for the treatment and prevention of sports injuries and day to day injuries. It can be used as part of a training programme to help prevent injury, as part of a rehabilitation programme to treat injury, as part of a warm-up for an event and as part of the wind-down after the event.
Sports massage like other forms of massage helps improve the suppleness and flexibility of muscles and joints. It improves lymph and blood circulation and assists the body systems in functioning at their optimum level. Sports massage speeds up healing of damaged or overworked tissue, increases fitness capabilities and performance, prevents future injuries by treating weak or problem areas, improves muscle suppleness, flexibility, and mobility.
Sports massage combines classic Swedish massage movements with other more advanced techniques such as lymph drainage, compression, fractioning, neuro-muscular technique, muscle energy technique, soft tissue release and connective tissue release.
