There are many reasons to get a Sports Massage. Today’s athletes expect the most out of their bodies. To always perform at maximum efficiency. This can cause serious stress to be put on the body which in turn can cause muscle fatigue and even serious injury.
Sports massage therapy is a specialized massage therapy that identifies the muscle group in need of repair and works to minimize the stress put on the body by aggressive training. At Zen Massage, we help athletes maintain peak efficiency and recovery with targeted sports massage therapy at our Salt Lake City massage studio.
1. Reduce Pain
Soft tissue massage can be used to help reduce pain caused by injury or soreness caused by intensive training. A variety of research demonstrates the positive impact of massage on pain levels when combined with exercises and manual therapy techniques.
2. Release Muscle Tension
Certain exercises for long periods can create stress on the body, which can create trigger points and tension in the muscles. Having massage regularly helps optimize your tissue’s pliability and increase your range of movement, thereby reducing the risk of injury.
3. Good Posture
Spending every day at work maintaining the same posture and engaging the same muscles over and over again can cause muscles to shorten and pull your joints. Which over time can reduce function and increase your chances of overuse and repetitive strain injuries. Sports massage can help to release these muscles and counteract the negative effects of bad posture.
4. Accelerate Recovery & Improve Training
Ache after training? Massage is a great way to help reduce Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS), basically soreness after exercise….massage may help recovery by increasing the blood circulation to the area and help to flush out the toxins that build up during exercise. Resulting in the improvement of recovery and helping you get ready for your next exercise.
Though not generally thought of as relaxing, Sports massage does help to reduce general anxiety by releasing tension. As the body releases and reduces physical tension, the mind follows, bringing about a great feeling of well-being and relaxation.
