Sports massage therapy

Sports massage focuses on areas of the body that are stressed and over worked from repetitive actions. Beneficial to your overall muscle health and connective tissue development, it will also improve range of movement and posture quality.

In addition this style of massage therapy will promote flexibility, reduce fatigue, improve endurance, and help prevent injuries.

When to get it

A sports massage can be used both prior to an athletic activity or after. This style of massage therapy works to enhance pre-event preparation and reduce recovery time for maximum performance.

What are the benefits of sports massage

The researchers at McMaster University reported that if you receive a massage after an intense workout it will signal muscles to build new mitochondria. Mitochondria are the powerhouses of our cells that convert nutrients into the energy our bodies can use. These mitochondria are vital in the recovery process.

Research shows that sports massage can do the following when performed by a qualified massage therapist:

  • Enhance athletic performance 
  • Increase blood circulation and lymph flow
  • Ruduce recovery time
  • Aid athletes in monitoring muscle tone
  • Promote relaxation 
  • Increase range of motion
  • Decrease the risk of injury 
  • Decrease muscle soreness and stiffness
  • Reduce muscle tension 
  • Aid in the prevention of injuries when regularly applied
  • Lower Blood Pressure 

Who should get a sports massage

A sports massage may be a good choice for someone who has a specific problem such as a sore knee from running, or a frozen shoulder from tennis.

This style of massage therapy can be applied to any level athlete or person that feels their active lifestyle could benefit from it.

While it can help prevent injury is also good for people with injuries, chronic pain or restricted range of motion. You don't have to be an olympic athlete or even go to the gym everyday to reap the rewards from a sports massage. Any active person looking to improve their overall well being can benefit from this type of massage therapy.
