Sports massage should be a regular part of every athlete’s training program. Athletes have different massage needs at different times. There are three basic categories – each utilizing a blend of stretches, swedish style, deep tissue and other holistic modalities tailored to each athlete’s therapeutic needs.
Pre-Event. It boosts circulation and increases flexibility and range of motion, thereby reducing muscle pain and soreness, leaving muscles relaxed and ready for action. Pre-event massage can help prevent muscle and tendon injuries and reduce the strain and discomfort of training. It also can be a great psychological advantage in competition.
Post-Event. Recovery after a competition involves not only the normalization and repair of tissue, but also general relaxation and mental calming. Post-event sports massage increases circulation to quicken the removal of fatigue toxins, relieve muscle spasms, and prevent soreness. It is used to assist athletes in recovery and in regaining their pre-event condition by relaxing tight, fatigued muscles, tendons, and ligaments.
Training. Throughout training and rigorous regular athletic activity, massage helps prevent injuries. Areas of muscular stress can result from repetitive or stressful motion and are typically precursors to injury. Sports massage assists in relieving muscular stress and preventing injuries, enabling harder and more consistent training. Adequate recovery is also a major factor in avoiding nagging minor injuries that inhibit maximum performance.
Deep Tissue Sculpting
The therapist utilizes firm, constant pressure working in the direction of the muscle fibers. Unlike Swedish style massage, no oil or lotion is used. This style of healing massage therapy helps to release chronic muscle tension as the therapist gently and slowly works through the layers of tissue, within the client’s physical comfort level. This technique is often used within a sports massage.
Trigger point therapy is utilized in specific locations, where points are held until tension and pain is reduced. Cross fiber friction is used to release adhesions in the muscles. Oil or cream is used to re-align the muscle fibers following this therapy. This type of massage is often incorporated into a sports massage session.
This is the most commonly recognized form of massage which utilizes long, flowing strokes to relax, rejuvenate and heal the body, mind and spirit. It helps to reduce general tension and induce a sense of health and well-being.
During pregnancy, a woman goes through many changes. Healing massage therapy can ease your aching low back, aid circulation to decrease the effects of edema (swelling), reduce stress and make you feel “human” again. The massage session is modified to ensure you are at your most comfortable. Modifications include extra pillows and side lying after the first few weeks of pregnancy.
