A stimulating massage is required for sports that require speed, strength and explosive power. For pre event nerves, a more calming massage is often welcomed. At this point a well-trained athlete would use massage psychologically rather than physically.
Post Sport Event Massage
Most athletes carry out a cooling down routine but often fail to do so after competition because of sheer exhaustion, elation or disappointment.
Massage can be an adequate substitute for a warm down as it can achieve much of the same effect by removing muscle waste and stretching the tissues.
