How Is a Sports Massage Different from Other Massages?

Deep tissue and Swedish massages target the deeper tissue in your muscles and connective tissues and use a series of specific strokes, including rolling, tapping, kneading and others in order to stimulate blood flow. These massage varieties can be a great solution for people who are under a great deal of stress or are experiencing painful muscle tension and stiffness. They can even benefit athletes, though they aren’t intended to address the specific needs of people who routinely engage in highly strenuous physical activity.

Sports massages, on the other hand, are primarily intended to prepare athletes to perform and compete to the best of their ability. They serve athletes by reducing inflammation, improving blood flow during recovery, increasing flexibility, and more. Sports massages have proven valuable for competitors in just about every avenue of athletic competition, from marathon running to professional football, and they are valuable in both treatment and preservation of an athlete’s current physical capabilities.

What Are the Benefits of Sport Massages?

When done in concert with other tailored treatments, sport massages have been known to offer a number of great benefits for athletes, including:

  • Improved blood flow to muscles
  • Reduced soreness
  • Less fatigue
  • Greater flexibility
  • Improved range of motion
  • Better endurance
  • Reduced likelihood of injury
