Simply, sports massage is designed to help active people prevent and address injuries while engaging in their favorite sport. It can help improve performance and prevent injury - in addition to helping the body recover from injuries associated with physical activity.
Sports can be repetitive, especially for runners, cyclists, racquet sports players and weightlifters. Sports massage helps release that muscle tension and promote tissue repair and muscle balance for a safer next workout.
A sports massage is ideal for anyone struggling with pain or discomfort in a specific area. Usually, a combination of Shiatsu and Swedish massage techniques are employed to ensure maximum benefits, but your therapist will tailor the treatment to your needs. While sports massage is the ideal remedy for athletically induced aches, it’s also brilliant as a preventative treatment to actively keep injuries at bay.
Aspects of sports massage therapy are gaining popularity as useful components in a balanced training regimen.
Sports massage therapy can be used as a means to enhance pre-event preparation and reduce recovery time for maximum performance during training or after an event.
Athletes have discovered that specially designed sports massage promotes flexibility, reduces fatigue, improves endurance, helps prevent injuries and prepares their body and mind for optimal performance.
This type of massage will also lower your blood pressure and heart rate, boosting your lymphatic drainage system and helping to improve flexibility, making it ideal as a performance aid.
