Sport massage has the purpose of fostering physical conditions, and avoids things that can harm and alleviate suffering as minimize as possible due to sports injuries (Sulistyorini, dkk 2013:12). Sport massage has the effect of relieving stress, improving tissue elasticity, and eliminating the buildup of lactic acid. In the general population of Indonesia, Sport massage is considered as the most powerful means for stimulating the decrease of lactic acid inside the muscle. Sport massage with Swedish techniques has major applications in the form of Eflleurage, Petrissage, Vibration, Tapotement, Friction, Shaking in accordance with anatomical of the athlete's body. The type of research used in this study is quantitative research with experimental method that is quasi experiment. Experimental method is a way to express the relationship between two or more variables to understand the influence of a variable on other variables. Based on these methods, the design research used nonequivalent control group design. In the design of this study, the experimental group and the control group were not chosen randomly, thus the subject division in this study using ordinal pairing technique. So from the design can be known correctly the difference from the treatment result given. Author is using E-Views 5 software to test the correlation between the dependent variable and the independent variable. In lowering the levels of lactic acid and pulse after exercise activities need to be considered. It is expected that trainers and implementers of sports activities can make Sport and Thai Massage as a reference in an effort to reduce lactic acid levels and pulse after doing heavy physical activity.
