Sports Massage is specifically tailored to sports injuries or ailments. It is not meant to be a relaxing massage and, indeed, can become quite vigorous at times. Sports Massage focuses on areas of the body that are overused and stressed from repetitive and often aggressive movements.
One of the key benefits of Sports Massage Therapy compared to other modalities is its ability to target muscle-tendon junctions.
Overuse of certain muscle groups 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 also in many cases performance may suffer and ultimately the athlete may develop more serious conditions.
Sports Massage can treat a variety of ailments and injuries that may occur as a result of exercise. It also has other benefits that allow you to train or exercise more efficiently.
Some benefits of Sports Massage Therapy include:
- Reduction of fatigue
- Relieving swelling
- Reducing muscle tension
- Promoting flexibility
- Repairing injuries that occur as a result of overexertion or overuse
- Relieving pain
- Preventing injuries
- Improving heart rate and blood pressure
- Increasing blood circulation and lymph flow
- Increasing flexibility and muscle performance
- Treating injuries such as shin splints, tennis elbows, sprains and strains
Sports Massage can help 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 regimen.
