sports massage

Combines assisted stretches and various massage techniques to treat sports injuries and improve an athlete's range of motion. Practitioners will often use assisted stretching to target a specific area of the body or a particular muscle group

thai massage

Gradually stretches the whole body, allowing the person to relax. The dynamic stretches that Thai massage practitioners use may offer deeper, more restorative stretches than some assisted stretching techniques of sports massage.
