Sports massage therapy is geared toward athletes of every kind, from world-class professionals to weekend joggers.
Sports Massage can help to reduce fatigue, alleviate swelling, reduce muscle tension, promote flexibility, prevent injury, and prepare the body for performance. Typically, it is used before or after an athletic event, and many athletes use it regularly as an integral part of their training regime.
Sports massage is sometimes called deep tissue release or soft tissue manipulation. It’s a type of massage that is specifically tailored to healing sports injuries or ailments.
It is not meant to be a relaxing massage that puts you to sleep. Sports massage is usually quite rigorous, and is focused on areas of the body and muscles that are overused and stressed, being over extended from repetitive and often aggressive movements.
It is this overuse that may often create problems and imbalances in the soft tissues. If these are ignored and allowed to become chronic, they will not only hinder the athlete's rate of improvement, but in many cases, their performance will also suffer. Ultimately, the athlete may be susceptible to developing more serious conditions.
One of the key benefits of Sports massage therapy, compared to other modalities, is its ability to target muscle-tendon junctions.
Sports massage can treat a variety of ailments and injuries that can result from exercise. It helps athletes be more efficient in their training, as well as aiding recovery from injuries or muscle fatigue.
Some benefits of sports massage include:
Draining Away Fatigue
Reducing Muscle Tension
Healing Injuries From Overexertion or Overuse
Improving Heart Rate and Blood Pressure
Increasing Blood Circulation and Lymph Flow
Treating Shin Splints, Tennis Elbow, Sprains and Strains
