Sports Massage

Sports Massage

Sports massage is typically used pre-event, post-event, and for maintenance. Stress and tension builds up in the body’s soft tissues during physical activity. Over-exertion and over-use can cause minor injuries and lesions, sports massage techniques are designed to break them down efficiently.

Benefits of Sports Massage – Denver Center for Massage Therapy

Sports massage can also help prevent injuries that get in the way of desired performance, relieve pain, relieve swelling, reduce muscle tension, prepare the athlete for peak performance, promote flexibility, increase joint range-of-motion, drain away fatigue, reduce muscle tension and decrease recovery time between workouts. Sports massage can also reduce the heart rate and blood pressure, and increase blood circulation and lymph flow. This is true for the professional athlete, as well as, someone who works out occasionally.

Sports Massage Techniques

Our Denver massage therapists use a variety of movements and techniques to try to help the athlete’s body achieve maximum performance and physical conditioning. Techniques used include:

  • Swedish style massage
  • effleurage (stroking)
  • petrissage (kneading)
  • compression, friction, tapotement (rhythmic tapping)
  • vibration, gliding, stretching, percussion and trigger point therapy

Since each type of sport uses muscles differently and has different demands on the players, sports massage may differ according to the sport the athlete plays. It can be aimed at helping heal strained muscles and allowing healthy ones to reach peak performance and maintaining it while minimizing the risk of injury. Each sport and athletic event uses muscle groups in a different way. Sports massage addresses these differences while keeping the whole athlete in mind.
