What is Sports Massage?
Sports massage helps correct the imbalances in soft tissue that are caused by repeated and intense physical activity or injuries. Sports massage before and after exercise may increase the performance results, improve the recovery process, and prevent injuries.
Benefits of Sports Massage
Sports massage therapy increases flexibility, assists in recovering from competition, and prevents the occurrence of injuries. Sports massage therapy warms up the muscles by stretching them and enhance flexibility that improves athletic performance. It improves the blood flow, decreases muscle tension, relaxes the muscles, and produces a state of psychological alertness. Sports massage benefits include:
- Reduced delayed muscle soreness.
- Decrease pain.
- Increase muscle flexibility.
- Improves recovery time.
- Prevent injuries.
Sports Massage Techniques
Sports massage differs from a full body massage, deep tissue massage, or any other massage techniques in a way that the Sports massage therapist focuses on certain areas of the body after a thorough assessment has been done before the treatment. These include:
- Myofascial Release: Light and gentle pressure is applied to myofascial connective tissue. It helps remove pain and boosts range of motion.
- Neuromuscular Techniques: Excessive tension creates trigger points in the muscles. These are fixed by Neuromuscular techniques.
- Stretching: Sports massage therapists may provide passive stretch massage. It builds up flexibility and increases mobility.
What is a sports massage like?
A classic sports massage is way different from the one you experience at a spa. It might be uncomfortable, slightly painful but it works.
Inform your sports massage therapist about the type of sports you play, the level of intensity, and your expertise in the respective sport. You would also need to tell your massage therapist about the previous injuries, surgeries, any trigger areas, and your performance objectives.
