The sports massage offers athletes an opportunity to relax and recuperate after a demanding competition; it also enhances preparation and performance.
Sports massage therapy is the application of common massage techniques, hydrotherapy, range of motion protocols, and strength-training elements to help an athlete reach predetermined goals.The specific regimen and technique is unique to the athlete and their sport of choice. Sports therapists focus heavily on the athlete’s most overused and stressed areas of the body, especially when dealing with an aggressive sport. A typical sports massage employs deep tissue methods to target and warm the most-used muscles while expelling post-workout toxins.
Regardless of the client’s sport of choice and workout routine, sports massage therapy can be immensely beneficial. The sports massage increases flexibility, reduces fatigue, improves endurance, and reduces overall recovery time during restoration. A sports massage therapy tailored to each individual client can assist in creating the optimal athlete by affecting their ability to perform.
Skilled sports therapists will focus on three key principles when assessing clients and designing therapy sessions: timing, technique, and intent. The timing includes identifying the best time for the massage (whether it’s before or after a major competition or during a recovery period). The particular techniques used throughout sports massage therapy are also designated by the practitioner; common modalities include friction, compression, direct pressure, stretching, and effleurage. Sports therapists must also identify the reason for treatment and create a treatment plan accordingly. A sports massage therapist that effectively understands these three key principles for their client will be able to provide the ideal treatment and timeframe for recovery.
Mastering sports massage therapy requires experience, extensive training, and education. No single approach or program works every time for every client. It’s vital to include a sports massage with a trained therapist to complement a regular workout regimen.

Benefits of Sports Modalities
LET'S TALK ABOUT STRESS RELIEF
Who doesn't want to reduce the stress in their life? Stress relief is key to finding the balance of a healthy lifestyle. Even a single massage session has been shown to significantly lower heart rate, cortisol and insulin levels - all of which help reduce daily stress.
LET'S FORCE THE ISSUE...OF RELAXATION
How often and how long are you actually able to disconnect from life? Massage has been shown to help the body enter a relaxing rest-and-recovery mode - an effect that lingers long after the massage is over.
SIT UP AND TAKE NOTICE...OF YOUR POSTURE
Unlike other bad habits, poor posture can help be corrected by relaxation. Massage helps reinforce healthy and natural movements, which can get your posture back on track.
BREATHE IN. BREATHE DEEPLY.
One of the telltale signs of anxiety and stress is constricted breathing. Massage can play an important role in relieving respiratory issues and training the body how to relax.
