This excellent form of sports massage is very powerful due to the element of stretching that is unique to this technique. We at Dhara Thai Massage combine traditional and proven successful sports massage techniques with Thai massage to help athletes and sportive ladies and gentlemen achieve peak performance.
Sports massage focuses even more attention on the specific areas of your body that are impacted by your sport. Runners, for example, tend to develop Achilles tendonitis, plantar faciaitis (Fersensporn), and ITB syndrome, the typical "runners knee". Tennis players are known to develop elbow and knee problems, while cyclists suffer from bad low-back pain, neck problems and heavy wrist strain.
Sports massage can be beneficial as a part of ongoing training, pre-event, and immediately following big events and competitions.
Typical benefits of Sports Massage:
Improved performance (tense muscles are weak and inefficient)
Faster recovery from intensive workouts and big events
Reduced risk of injury (tight muscles and tendons are more prone to injury)
Management of developing problems so they do not become worse
Faster recovery from injuries (improved circulation speeds healing)
