Top 5 Reasons To Get A Sports Massage

Never received a sports massage in your life? 

Or just looking for an excuse to book your next one?


Here are the top 5 reasons why you should get a sports massage

#1. You’re an athlete

As an athlete you need to keep your body in top condition. A sports massage may protect your body from pain and injuries.

It prepares you for your workouts and allows you to perform better in action.

After intense training, your muscle will be tense and possibly even inflamed. By being treated with a sports massage, your blood flow will increase to that area and hasten your recovery time.

Having frequent massages will also help increase your joint mobility and flexibility, which are vital factors for any athlete.


#2. You have an injury

Recently injured yourself playing sport or just messing around?

A sports massage speeds the recovery time of an injury. By massaging the deeper parts of your muscles, blood flow will increase and the toxins can wash away.

And apart from speeding up your recovery time, regular sports massages can help to reduce the risk of future injury.


#3. Feeling tense, fatigued, and anxious?

Even if you’re not an athlete, you’re constantly competing in the sport of life.

This means sitting with poor posture at work for long hours at your desk, doing heavy lifting at your job, or even feeling sore after playing tennis for fun.

A sports massage will help you relax your muscles, fight fatigue, reduce your heart rate and blood pressure, and increase blood and lymph flow.

As a result your immune system is boosted and your body will heal faster. 24 to 48 hours later you’ll feel even more relaxed and have minimal muscle tension remaining.


#4. Need a boost in concentration?

A sports massage really allows you to have better awareness of your body and your surroundings.

The feelings of discomfort or pain can cloud your mind and make it hard to concentrate.


#5. Decrease delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS)

Dread the painful, stiff feeling in your muscles the day or two after working out?

Having constant sports massages allows your body to flush out the lactic acid and reduce soreness when it does come.

 So, if you want to get rid of your muscle tension after a long day at work or prevent an injury from occurring, a sports massage is the right massage for you.
