What is Sports Massage Therapy?
Sports therapy massage is a type of massage that is meant to help people who have physically demanding lifestyles and/or hobbies. This type of massage considers how different activities can impact certain joints, muscle groups, tendons, ligaments, and soft tissue groups. The focus on sports massage therapy uses specific techniques to get the most benefit and supports further physical activity. A thorough examination is performed at the start of the massage therapy to develop a specifically informed massage therapy plan that addresses each athlete's unique requirements.
Relaxation & Recovery
Sports massage is used to help people recover from sports or to help them improve their performance. People use sports massage all the time to make their muscles less tight. This is especially helpful for athletes during the off-season when their muscles are more stressed. People who play and train rigorously year-round can use this method to help their bodies recover quickly from injuries.
Another benefit of sports massage therapy is that it helps release and remove toxins from the muscles. When the muscles are used for a long time and the body is challenged, toxins can build up in the tissues. Sports massage therapy helps to work and loosen the muscle fibers of overworked areas. This will help to relieve lactic acid, along with all of the other painful toxins in the muscles and tissues. The body can then remove and discard them quickly and efficiently.
Athletes who are not experiencing any physical damage or difficulty can participate in regularly scheduled massages to help improve their athletic performance. Sports massage therapy is designed to support the areas of the body that are used when someone participates in a sport or exercise. This type of therapy can help athletes perform better and provide them with the physical support they need to reach their goals.

The Benefits of Sports Massage Therapy
There are some great reasons to choose this kind of athletic therapy, even when there are so many other kinds of massages available. Activities such as athletic games, organized sports, and rigorous exercise may be physically demanding. This means that it's important to select the appropriate type of massage technique for an active lifestyle and body. Sports massage therapy is specifically designed to support and enhance the performance, recovery, and relaxation of people who are frequently or intensely physically active — particularly athletes.
