Sports massage is a special form of massage and consists of specific components designed to reduce injuries, alleviate inflammation, provide warm-up, etc. typically used by amateur and professional athletes before, during, and  after athletic events and within their training regimens. 

We realize that an injury can take an athlete (both amateur and professional) out of the picture and out of their sport so we continually watch for areas that may be vulnerable to injury. Sports Massage Therapy in Beaverton Portland Raleigh Hills Oregon Kirstin Davis Massage Therapist
For the weekend athlete, the main purpose of sports massage is to help alleviate the stress and tension which builds up the body's soft tissues during physical activity. Where minor injuries and lesions occur, due to overexertion and/or overuse, massage can break them down quickly and effectively. Sports massage can help prevent those nagging injuries that so often get in the way of performance and achievement, whether a person is an extreme athlete or a once a week jogger.

Sports massage can assist recovery from an injury that has already occurred. Sports massage in contrast to relaxation massage is more vigorous to stimulate circulation allowing greater blood to the muscles for optimal performance. After exercise, the massage will assist in the removal of toxins (lactic acids) that build up in the muscles during exercise.

Each type of sport has different demands on the players. Each sport uses muscle groups in a different way. Sports massage is designed to address those specific concerns and may differ according to the sport the athlete plays. Sports massage can be aimed to help foster faster healing of strained muscles or allow healthy ones to reach peak performance and maintain them while minimizing the risk of injury. 

Sports massage can also include pre-event, post-event and maintenance techniques that promote greater athletic endurance and performance, lessen chances of injury and reduce recovery.
