In addition to those techniques used in Remedial Massage, Sports massage uses the following techniques:

NMT – Neuro Muscular Technique where pressure is applied to the affected muscle just to within the client’s tolerance threshold and maintained until the pain eases. This results in a reflex action that makes the muscle relax.
MET – Muscle Energy Technique to help stretch or strengthen muscles
