Sports Massage is geared toward athletes but you certainly don’t have to be an Olympian to benefit from this technique. Whether you are a weekend warrior, a regular gym-goer, an aspiring amateur athlete or a world class professional, Sports Massage can benefit and complement your activity level. This technique is geared toward each clients specific sport of choice by focusing on the particular areas of the body that are overused, overstressed, and even possibly injured from repetitive movements and aggressive training.
Many athletes from Olympians to weekend joggers have integrated Sports Massage as part of their training and maintenance regimen because of the many benefits received. Sports Massage helps to increase range of motion, decrease fatigue, improve endurance, reduce recovery time, prevent injury, and tune up not just the body, but the mind in preparation for optimal performance levels. Sports Massage is also very effective in helping increase rehab time from sports injuries. There have also been studies that show a decrease in DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness) for athletes who receive Sports Massage following their athletic activities. Read here about these benefits.
Sports Massage can be used immediately before an event (usually a brief, energizing, light pressure approach), during an event (primarily for endurance athletes) immediately following an event, or in between events as a component of the athletes training and maintenance of their body.
Anyone who uses their body often in an athletic fashion can benefit from Sports Massage on a regular basis. Depending on your activity level, every week may be optimal as well as bi-weekly or monthly for maintenance. Speak with your therapist to discuss the advantages Sports Massage may have for your lifestyle.
