Massage therapy has become an important part of athletic programs from sports medicine clinics, to college training, to professional locker rooms and Olympic training. A growing number of trainers believe that massage therapy can provide an extra edge to the athletes who participate in high performance sports.
Massage has become a necessary ingredient for a complete workout. More and more people are realizing that a complete workout routine should include not only the exercise itself, but also caring for the wear-and-tear and minor injuries that naturally occur with strenuous movement. The physiological and psychological benefits of massage make it an ideal complement to any total conditioning program.
The Benefits of Sports Massage
Regular sports massage can:
- Reduce the chance of injury, through proper stretching and event preparation, and through deep tissue massage.
- Improve range of motion and muscle flexibility, resulting in improved power and performance.
- Shorten recovery time between workouts.
- Maximize the supply of nutrients and oxygen through increased blood flow.
Anyone who routinely stretches their physical limits through exercise such as running, cycling, hiking, swimming, dancing, tennis, strength training, aerobics and other sports can benefit from a massage.
Adding regular massage to your exercise routine has many benefits. It helps you get in shape faster, with less stiffness and soreness. It also helps you recover faster from heavy workouts, and relieves conditions which may cause injury.
