Aharon Yakovy

Sports massage is a profession and a profession you only learn from a professional!!! Being in the past the champion of Israel in boxing for 15 calendar years who represented the country around the world and working at the same time with the country’s top athletes, I learned significant things that I apply as the director of the college such as: professionalism and professionalism, adherence to the goal, determination and perseverance, dealing with difficulties, pressures, obstacles and subsequent crises on the way to the top. A therapist for athletes does not need to experience pain in order to properly treat their patients, but therapists who have experienced various types of pain and disabilities themselves, have a special understanding and sensitivity to the emotional and physical experiences that their patients go through. It is natural to treat people with a similar experience to ours differently, treat them better and feel a kind of partnership with them. That’s why many athletes find it easy for them to contact a therapist who is also involved in sports. The fact that Aharon Yacovi was and is involved in sports brings him closer to their world for the reason that he went through and is going through similar processes and it is easy for him to understand what they are going through. The treatment method includes methods of sports massage, pressing, moving joints, stretching all the muscles of the body, vigorous and relaxing movements, vibrations to the tissues, etc.

Aim of the treatment massage
