Sports massage is not just for Olympic athletes. It is great for those with injuries, chronic pain, or restricted range of motion. Sports Massage is a special form of massage and is typically used before, during, and after athletic events. The purpose of the massage is to prepare the athlete for peak performance, to drain away fatigue, to relieve swelling, to reduce muscle tension, to promote flexibility and to prevent injuries.
There are 4 types of Sports Massage:
- Pre-Event, it is directed toward parts of the body that will be involved in the exertion. Sessions are short and stimulating, lasting about 15 – 45 minutes prior to the event.
- Post-Event, it is given within 2 hours of the event to normalize the body tissues.
- Restorative Sports Massage is given during training to allow the athlete to train harder and with less injury.
- Rehabilitative Sports Massage is geared to alleviate pain from injury and return the body to health.
A sports massage is a good choice if you have a specific problem and are looking for — a tender knee from running, for instance.
