Sports massage main goals are to promote and speed recovery, prevent injury and improve performance.
Faster recovery from training allows athletes to train with increased intensity and frequency. Techniques used focus on increasing circulation. Increased blood flow brings oxygen and nutrients to tissues while also removing metabolic waste that can build up in tissue from training. Athletes put their body under exceptional stress at times. Unfortunately that strain can lead to injury. No athlete wants to be sidelined with an injury. Sports massage speeds recovery from injury and will get you back up and running (pun intended) fast.
Whether you are a weekend warrior or an elite athlete, training can lead to overuse injury. Regular sport massage can help prevent injury before it starts. Prevention is the key to success; if you are concerned about old injuries flaring up a regular, consistent treatment plan will be discussed between you and your therapist
