Sports Massage: Beneficial for Pros – and Weekend Warriors
Sports massage is a form of massage that utilizes specific protocols and techniques to help athletes obtain maximum performance and physical conditioning by increasing power, endurance and mobility.
It is a vital tool for keeping athletes primed for top performance, and in the game for as long as possible. It is particularly beneficial when an athlete is in training for an event. Areas of muscular stress can result from repetitive and stressful motion and are typically precursors to injury. Sports massage assists in relieving muscular stress and preventing injuries, enabling harder and more consistent training.
Sports Massage is also helpful for anyone who routinely stretches physical limits through movement: swimmers, weight lifters, runners, golfers, ball players, skaters, dancers, tennis players, musicians, boxers, and even weekend warriors.
Throughout training and rigorous athletic activity, massage should be an integral part of your training regime. And as we enter the summer season and you possibly take up new athletic endeavors, don’t ignore those achy muscles, because here’s the beauty of massage: not only does each session feel great, but the therapeutic benefits are compounded when massage is utilized as a frequent therapy. The more you massage, the healthier your muscles will feel, and will perform.
If your athletic plan doesn’t go as planned, it’s important to note that sports massage can also help accelerate the healing process during rehabilitation. To ensure that there are no restrictions on the type or duration of massage, please talk with your doctor before starting any sports massage rehabilitation therapy.
