Sports Massage: Reduce injuries and recover faster
Sports massage is far from limited to just top athletes. In recent years, an increased numbers of people lightly involved in sports request this type of massages.
What are the benefits of a sports massage
Sports massage both increases your levels of fitness maintenance and reduces recovery time from injury. It can now be taken advantage of at both national and local level. Sports massage is a speciality within the field of massage therapy that focuses specifically on assisting the healing process, removing soreness or stiffness in your muscles, and preventing further injury. Other benefits include:
- Increased fitness maintenance
- Reduced recovery time
- Increased flexibility
- Improved blood flow
- Minimal muscle tension
Studies have shown that sports massage can reduce the pain normally experienced in the 72 hours after exercise.
What will happen during your session?
Sports massage targets your soft tissues. The primary goal of your session is to improve your recovery after training or a personal injury. These sessions are also beneficial for those looking to warm-up or relax before the competition. This is why the sessions will mainly involve massage and compression but some sessions can also include stretching and muscle energy techniques.
