Sports massage is targeted on the treatment of the soft tissues. The goal is to aid recuperation from training or personal injury or to warm-up and relax just before exercising or competition. It isnít a brand new speciality and the methods employed have been enhanced through the years by different physical therapists including physiotherapists, osteopaths and even medical professionals.
