Developed to help with muscle systems used for a particular sport, sports massage uses a variety of approaches to help athletes in training -- before, during, or after sports events. Our therapists also incorporate stretching into the session. You might use it to promote flexibility and help prevent injuries. Many clients get sports massage after intense training and before events to help speed recovery and maximize their potential. Sports massage also helps muscle strains and aid healing after a sports injury.
Preventing and treating injury while enhancing athletic performance.
Benefits of Sports Massage
Sports massage is designed to enhance athletic performance and recovery. Athletes generally use massage therapy during training to promote and speed their potential, pre-event for relaxation and focus, and post-event for recovery, as well as to prevent or treat injuries.
Post-event massage can reduce recovery time, enabling an athlete to resume training much sooner than rest alone would allow. When an athlete sustains an injury, skillful massage therapy can often speed and improve the quality of healing. Many of our clients are competitive high school and college athletes who find massage aids their training, relaxes them for events and gives them an edge over their peers.
