Sports Injury Recovery and Prevention
Athletes around the world are relying on massage as an important part of their training regimen. Sports Massage techniques, when used regularly, can increase the blood flow that is needed for recovery. Also, it will improve the range of motion and strength of injured muscles and accelerate their healing process. With a full recovery you will be able to increase your workouts and allow your body to adapt to a higher level of stress. More than a treatment for injuries, sports massage produces overwhelming benefits for athletes physically, physiologically, and psychologically.
Sports massage is designed to prepare the athlete for their best
performance, reduce fatigue, and relieve muscle swelling and tension. During
physical activity—especially strenuous—muscle tension builds up in the body’s
soft tissues. Due to overextension or overuse, minor injuries and lesions occur
in these tissues that can cause a great deal of pain and poor athletic
performance. Sports massage helps alleviate pain and prevent such injuries that
greatly affect flexibility, mobility, response time, and overall performance in
