Sports Massage
This therapy is used in three distinct ways:

1.     Warming a sports-person up
As a part of the sports-persons warm-up, the vigorous massage kneading and tapotement are used on the muscles and tissue concerned with the sporting event. This helps to promote blood flow, and literally warms the area. This therapy is done 'in the field'.

2.     For maintenance or remedial

3.     Cooling the sports-person down
After the sports-person has done their usual cool-down routine, massage therapy is used to soothe and assist drainage. There has been an observable reduction in DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness.)

I intend to expand this entry greatly, especially the techniques mentioned above. Please, watch this space!
