Sports massage therapy is beneficial to athletes of every kind, from professionals to morning joggers or yoga lovers. It is a specific type of massage before, during and after any sports activity. Compared to other types, sports massage is more targeted, focusing more on relieving specific muscles and tissues, for example, hip flexors or ankles. Therapist tailors each session to your body’s specific needs seeking to increase circulation before a workout, loosen the joints, or improve flexibility and range of motion. Sports massage can also help ease the soreness that often is felt days after completing an intense workout. It enhances your performance in your sport or workout by improving athletic endurance, lessening the chance of injury and shortening the time needed to recover from a training session or injury.
