Prepare & Recover
Sports Massage Therapy to prepare for your next event or recover.
Massage Therapy for sports is perfect for anybody that is active , exercises, works out, or participates in races or sporting events.
Unlike prenatal massage which is designed for pregnant women, a sports massage’s goal is to prepare the athlete for optimal performance by reducing fatigue, and reducing muscle swelling and tension.
During physical activity, particularly very strenuous muscle activity, muscle tension builds up in the body’s soft tissue. Resulting from overuse or over extension, lesions and minor injuries can occur in these tissues that can hinder athlete performance and cause minor or major pain or injuries.
Sports massage helps alleviate pain and prevent such injuries that greatly affect flexibility, mobility, response time, and overall performance in athletic events.
When should I get it?
Sports massage ideally is better to be applied before and after athletic events, with maintenance sessions in-between meets or competitions.
Pre-event sports massage focuses on warming-up the major muscles to be used and improves tissue pliability. It may also helps get the athlete in a good mental state for competition and prepares them to reach their athletic performance potential. Post-event sports massage is given following an athletic event and is mainly focused upon recovery. This type of sports massage is geared toward reducing muscle spasms and metabolic build-up that occur with vigorous exercise.
As usual, if you have any questions or concerns prior to receiving your sports massage always check with your Licensed Massage Therapist prior to your session.
