Sports Massage

Sports massage is becoming an effective part of the training and competition regimens of many athletes. Massage therapy provides benefits during all phases of training and competition, including at the event. Bodywork provides great benefits during all training cycles, before and after competition, as well as in the recovery phases after cycles of competition or demanding sports events.

A knowledgeable and experienced sports massage therapist will know the types of massage to use at all these critical times in an athlete?s yearly cycle. The athlete?s timely needs must be met according to where he or she is in that cycle. Different types of massage strokes are used during training cycles, competition and during recovery stages to gain specific results to meet the individual athlete?s needs and goals.

Active Release Technique
by: Brenda Rowell

Assuming you mean ART, Active Release Technique, yes, it does work. It is very precise. There are many differing techniques out there all with their own twist, but still work.
