Increasing research supports sports massage therapy as a significant aide in helping to reduce injuries. It has become a fast-growing career path for many who wish to work in sports massage—whether for sports teams or dedicated athletes. Besides improving athletic performance, sports massage therapy can decrease muscle tension and increase recovery time from injury.
