What is sports massage?

Sports massage is a type of remedial massage therapy designed to help athletes recover more quickly, prevent injury and aid in stretching. Sports massages target overused and stressed areas of the body that deal with forceful, aggressive, or repetitive movements as a result of a specific sport or athletic discipline.

Receiving regular sports massages can help improve performance, enhance flexibility, increase endurance, and limit fatigue. Many athletes have made sports massages a regular part of their routine, as they can help clear and relax the mind before a competition, race, game, or meet.

Pre-event, post-event, and maintenance sports massages

There are three main types of sports massages: pre-event, post-event, and maintenance sports massages. Depending on your athletic endeavours, each one can provide several benefits to your performance and overall well-being.

Maintenance sports massage
A maintenance sports massage is typically conducted once every one or two weeks as part of an athlete’s integrated, overall training schedule. However, one-time maintenance sports massages can help with strain or soreness associated with everyday effort or exercise. Maintenance sports massages are designed to reduce the development of scar tissue, keep myofascial tissue loose and flexible, enhance blood flow and nutrient delivery to muscles, and increase range of motion.
Post-event sports massage
A post-event sports massage helps to facilitate full healing and efficient, speedy recovery, especially after the strain involved with heavy effort. A post-event sports massage can also help reduce soreness, reduce cramping, prevent stiffness, maintain flexibility, remove lactic acid and waste build-up, and promote the healing flow of blood and nutrients.
Pre-event sports massage
A pre-event sports massage can help athletes prevent serious strain or injury that might arise during a strenuous athletic event. This massage can help you warm up your muscles, stretch deeply, and become limber for your sporting event, while also stimulating blood and nutrient flow throughout your body.

Additionally, reducing muscle tension and increasing the flow of blood and nutrients helps to decrease stress and promote a state of psychological readiness.

Frequently asked questions

What conditions can a sports massage help treat?
A sports massage can serve as an excellent complementary therapy when treating the following conditions:

● Edema (swelling)
● Muscle tension
● Repetitive strain injuries
● Sore spots
● Muscle pain and stiffness
● Tendinitis
● Muscle sprains
● Muscle strains
● Muscle soreness

It’s important to remember that if you have a serious medical injury, you should always consult a doctor before starting any course of therapy.

What can I expect during a sports massage?
During a sports massage, your massage therapist might put your body through a range of stretches, gently pushing you past the point to which you would generally stretch. You might encounter percussive strokes, which help tone the muscles, or light, long stretches, which stimulate blood flow. Additionally, two-handed kneading is another frequently-practised sports massage technique, which effectively loosens tight muscles.
More questions about sports massages

We know that getting a sports massage for the first time can be a stressful decision, especially for athletes who want to make sure their performance remains optimal and their downtime is minimal. Sports massages can help heal strains and sprains much faster and get athletes back to their sport as soon as possible.

When should I schedule my first sports massage?

Many athletes choose to make a sports massage a part of their weekly or monthly routine, while others decide to get a sports massage when they experience an injury or need help improving their mobility and flexibility. In fact, regular sports massages can also help prevent injury by maximizing circulation, decreasing stress cortisol hormones, and decreasing muscle tension.

You should schedule your first sports massage when it is most convenient for you. Our dedicated team can help you decide how the sports massage will work best for your body, and where it might be able to fit into your regular fitness routine.

Will a sports massage hurt or leave me too achy?

Sports massage targets the fascia deep inside the muscle tissue. This means it requires a bit more pressure than some other massages, and it can leave you feeling like your muscles experienced an intense workout for up to 48 hours. However, if you stay well-hydrated before your appointment and you alternate ice and heat on your muscles when you get home, your recovery time will be minimal.
