For peak conditioning – especially leading up to a major event – regular massage therapy can help ensure you’re performing at your absolute best. Sports professionals across the globe use massage therapy to reduce muscle tension, to promote relaxation, to enhance performance, to help prevent injuries, and to promote healing and recovery from an injury. Sport massage narrows in on muscle-tendon connections. In turn, range of motion and post-workout muscular trauma is significantly reduced. However, distinct treatments may vary. Your treatment is specific to your athlete profile, sport, and health.

History of Sport Massage

The history of Therapeutic Massage dates as far back as the Ancient Chinese, Ancient Egyptians, and India. However, Sport Massage has become far more prevalent as we learn how beneficial it can be for athletes striving to be at the top of their game. It is a more focused type of massage therapy distinctly designed with the athletes goals and specific sport in mind.

What to expect during your Sport Massage:

If you are an athlete preparing in the pre season, training through mid season or repairing post season, a Sports Massage is the right service for you.

Your Sport Massage appointment will begin with a short but in-depth assessment. This is your opportunity to point out what your passion is and how you want to improve, as well as identify any special requests or concerns you may have. During your assessment, expect to answer questions regarding your health history including injuries and surgeries, leisure activities, work routines, areas of concern, and pain levels. These questions help the massage therapist align their treatment plan with your specific goals.

Your massage therapist will then leave the room – allowing you to undress to your personal comfort level and cover yourself on the massage table. Make sure to communicate with your therapist throughout your massage. If you are uncomfortable in any way, do not hesitate to let your therapist know.

The primary modalities your therapist will choose to incorporate are: Deep Pressure Techniques, Tapotement, Active Myofascial Release, Passive Myofascial Release, and Remedial Exercises. They may also provide pre or post event sport “K” taping. Your therapist is trained to identify the source of your issue and treat as needed.

In addition, make sure to eat a couple of hours before your massage – and not right before. Drinking water leading up to and after your appointment is also a good idea. Consider rescheduling if you have certain skin irritations on the day of or if you have a fever.

Other things you should know about your sport massage:

Please understand that not all issues require deep tissue work or prolonged deep pressure. Should you have more than one area of concern, your therapist will prioritize the chief complaint and create a treatment plan for the time allotted and for follow ups.
