Sports massage is a specialized form of massage therapy tailored to the unique needs of athletes and individuals engaged in regular physical activity. Whether you’re an elite athlete, a weekend warrior, or someone who enjoys mild exercises like regular walking, sports massage can be an integral part of your exercise regimen.
Timing and Techniques
Pre-Event: Before sporting activities, sports massage focuses on preparing the muscles for intense use. It stimulates circulation, enhances flexibility, and mentally prepares you for the event.
During Events: For endurance sports, massage during the event can aid in maintaining performance and preventing injury.
Post-Event: After sports or exercise, the focus shifts to recovery – alleviating soreness, reducing muscle tension, and accelerating the healing process for any minor tissue injuries.
