American professional athletes have been using sports massage for more than two decades now, and the technique is considered effective for precontest warm-ups (to increase circulation and flexibility), postevent cool-downs (to relax performance-tightened muscles), and between-contest body maintenance (to keep tissues loose and maintain posture). This straightforward and well-illustrated book shows you how to perform sports-massage techniques on yourself or a partner. It also includes flexibility exercises and offers sport-specific advice.
