You can think of Sports Massage as several special types of Therapeutic Massage. All of the same techniques can be used. There are several types of Sports Massage. Note that V-Va does not provide massage on-site.


  • MAINTENANCE - Enhances recovery from exertion, and helps the athlete maintain optimal health. (At V-Va, ask for Therapeutic Deep Tissue Massage and ask them to make a note that it is for Sports.)
  • REMEDIAL/REHABILITATION - This is used to improve a debilitating condition or heal a sports related injury. (At V-Va, ask for Therapeutic Deep Tissue Massage and ask them to make a note that it is for Sports.)
  • PRE-EVENT - This prepares an athlete for an event and is intended to wake the muscles up, not to relax them, and helps the athlete to mentally prepare for the event. It can be done at a massage clinic, but is usually done at the event site (At V-Va, ask for Therapeutic Deep Tissue Massage and ask them to make a note that it is for Sports.)
  • INTER-EVENT - Some sports activities, including track and field events and those divided into periods (i.e. hockey or football), require an athlete to compete at various times. This massage is used to help an athlete recover from one performance while preparing for the next. This must be done at the event's location.
  • POST-EVENT - This is used to provide immediate recovery from issues arising from the competition, and may include first aid or referral to other health care professionals. This must be done at the event's location.
