Who Can Benefit from Clinical Sports Massage?

Although Clinical and Orthopedic Sports Massage is generally associated with various kinds of sports and athletics, almost anyone who is physically active can benefit from the techniques of sports massage. Potential populations include not only professional and top echelon amateur athletes, but also professional dancers, those involved in fitness activities (yoga, weightlifting, aerobics), recreational sports (biking, skiing, backpacking) and the many physically demanding vocations. In addition, clinical sports massage techniques developed through working with athletes can be adapted to address common injuries and complaints associated with daily living and aging populations.
