Massages are something everyone knows about and loves to get.  They are known to be relaxing and bring relief to your body.  Recently the massage has been found to be very beneficial to athletes.  It is something that all athletes are beginning to incorporate into their training regimens.  The massage that many of these athletes are choosing to do is the sports massage.

Each individual massage is designed for that athlete and the sport that they play.  As we all know every athlete is different and each sport requires different muscles groups.  All the different muscle groups must work together in order for the athlete to perform the movements needed in their sport.  The sport massage focuses on the different muscle groups and the functionality of each group.  Depending on the muscle group that is being worked will decide how the therapist varies their technique.

Everyone always sees the massage as a way to relax, but the sports massage can also be used to increase performance and reduce recovery time.  The benefits of the sports massage include:

 Increase in Range of Motion- Massage loosens muscles increasing the total range of motion in an athlete which makes them be able to move better and enhance performance.

 Shortened Recovery Time- Helps the athlete to recover quicker and get back on the field sooner.

 Increased Delivery of Oxygen and Nutrients- The faster the body gets oxygen and nutrients the quicker and more efficient the recovery will be.

 Relaxation of Muscles and Reduced Pain- This is what everyone knows a massage for, but yes a sports massage does relax also.  It relaxes tense and fatigued muscles from competition which relieves pain and tension.

Everyone should give sports a try and see how it works for them.  Get the most out of your body by adding this great procedure to your training regimen.
