This comprehensive DVD includes more than two hours of techniques detailing 13 sessions and 10 injuries that will give you the tools to work with runners, cyclists, swimmers, tennis players and other athletes.
Learn about the physiological principles that govern sports massage and the differences between each sport. The 13 sessions include a pre-event massage for runners, an inter-event massage for tennis players, and a post-event session for cyclists. The next sessions are detailed sequences for the following injuries: plantar fasciitis, shin splints, ITB syndrome, hamstring strain, neck pain, back pain, ankle sprains, patellar tendonitis, tennis elbow and the rotator cuff. Each session is a complete treatment protocol that will help to keep your athlete in top shape, recover from injuries, and improve their performance.
This DVD also includes information on stretches, sport psychology, diet, and how to set up a massage station at a sporting event.
