WHAT IS

Sports Massage

Recovery is an important part of your workout routine. After all, that’s how your muscles actually rebuild what’s been broken down during exercise. Before your massage begins, one of our trained therapists will ask you a little more about the types of activities you do, and then they will be able to focus on the areas of the body most affected by that exercise specifically. So, if you are an avid runner, you can expect some attention around your leg area, or if you are big into CrossFit, your therapist may want to focus more on your entire body.

 Various Sports Massage techniques can range from stretching and manipulating muscles, to getting deeper into muscle tissue with intense pressure. Because of the targeted nature of Sports Massage, you will likely not receive a full-body massage, so, for body-wide aches and muscle knots, you may prefer one of our other massage treatments.

Benefits

You can definitely request a Sports Massage from us if you feel any pain in specific areas caused by stress, sitting or sleeping in odd positions, or even physical trauma-induced pain from accidents or old injuries, as well as training injuries.

The bonus with this type of massage, is that it  incorporates stretching, and an active range of motion, so it mimics exercise more closely. This is needed during rehabilitation. If this sounds like you, then you can experience the benefits of our Sports Massage treatments in the following ways:

  • Reduces muscle tension and pain

  • Lowers blood pressure

  • Increases blood circulation and lymph flow

  • Improves flexibility and range of motion

  • Improves muscle recovery time

What To Expect

Completely new to Sports massage? Book your first appointment either well before a big physical event, or at least a few weeks out. If you miss this window, we recommend that you wait until the day after. If you are familiar with Sports Massage, then you could benefit from a pre-race treatment in the seven to two-day window prior to an event. Be sure to inform your therapist if you are getting a massage pre-event (anywhere between 15 minutes to 48 hours prior), so that they can tailor your massage accordingly, and you won’t risk of soreness on the day of your event.

If your body is dehydrated, your fascia and muscles will become stiff, which translates to a more painful massage. Ensure that you are taking in adequate amounts of water before you hop on the table. A Sports Massage helps with recovery from lactic acid build up, but be prepared to be move around and interact physically during your session. Your therapist will then end off by booking a follow-up session to maintain the work performed.
