Like most therapies Sports Massage has ancient roots, dating back to Ancient Rome when a famous physician called Galen prescribed massage for Gladiators before and after training. In modern history during the 1924 Olympic Games a Finnish runner named Paavo Nurmi won 5 Gold medals across a series of running events and put much of credit down to the massage he received throughout the campaign. Later in 1996 Sport Massage Teams became prevalent in Olympic Teams and this trend has continued and grown throughout the sporting community with most Sports Clubs making use of Sports Massage Therapists all over the world.
