DR TREVOR C BENNETT 
MB.Ch.B, ITEC 4 SPORT AND REMEDIAL MASSAGE THERAPY
  Just some oil and one’s hands - massage must be the oldest of therapies; after all, massage is basically a refinement of touch, specialised touch. 
  Swedish Massage: takes its name from the Swedish physiologist, Per Henrik Ling, who created a scientific system of massage by combining Eastern and Western techniques in the late 1800’s. 
 It is a firm, usually whole body massage, particularly valuable in reducing stress and inducing relaxation, a general conditioner. 
  Sport and Remedial Massage: was largely pioneered in the sports world but the armoury of techniques is of course equally relevant whether or not the injury occurred on the sports field! Some remedial massage techniques are also used in other holistic therapies but remedial massage is one of the least invasive.
  Pre and Post Event Sports Massage: this usually means immediately before or after an event, e.g. athletics or a match of some sort. In this situation the massage is quite different and usually performed on site, at the event. Deep massage before an event is counterproductive and tends to reduce performance; consequently, pre-event massage is light and brisk to warm up and stimulate muscles and circulation. Similarly after the event - the massage will be slightly deeper (not deep because of likely tenderness) and more leisurely and relaxing. 
  However: when “pre-event” means days or weeks before the event then the massage will be deep with plenty of stretches using special techniques and will most likely mean a series of massages leading up to the event; in fact regular massage should be regarded as part of the training programme.
