Rehabilitation/Maintenance Massage is typically done on a “rest” day and in clinic rather than at an event. This massage targets recovery between training or events, assessment and treatment of injuries, keeping muscles flexible and relief of tender areas before they become a problem.

Post-Event Sports Massage is targeted to help recover from a high intensity exercise, competition, or training session. Typically given anywhere from 30 minutes to 24 hours after the competition or activity, this massage is brief, perhaps 30 minutes, and utilizes techniques and stretching to enhance circulation, calm muscles, and aid in faster recovery.
