A Sports massage is a more invigorating massage. It uses quicker strokes supplemented with stimulating percussion and compressions. Sports massage can help reduce stiffness, chance of injury, lactic acid buildup, and injury recovery time. Sports massage is intended to help you recover from a workout or mild injury quickly. This is a contrast to the relaxing and tranquil Swedish massage. Sports massage was originally used to help an athlete's body achieve peak performance and continue competing after soreness or a mild injury, but it can be adapted to a longer massage session to give non-athletes similar benefits.
