What are the benefits of sports massage?

Sports massage has a number of physical, physiological and psychological benefits. As well as helping the body to recover from any injuries incurred as a result of strenuous physical activity, a course of therapy also has a role to play in any athlete or sportsperson’s long-term injury prevention strategy.

Setting aside time for regular massage treatment can help to improve performance, mobility and overall long-term well-being. We also recommend consulting we our sports massage therapists alongside physiotherapists or osteopaths.  The physical benefits include:

Pain reduction

Sports massage therapy removes the tension and waste products in the body which cause pain, as well as helping to release the body’s natural endorphins.

Improved circulation and delivery of nutrients to the muscles

Helping to increase the blood flow to the soft tissues, allowing nutrients to pass through to them more easily. Through this process, muscle soreness can be reduced.

Breakdown of scar tissue

As a result of strenuous physical activity, scar tissue can develop within the muscles and soft tissue. This scar tissue is typically inelastic and can restrict range of motion and mobility. A course of sports massage and deep tissue therapy is useful in breaking down the scar tissues of the body which helps to increase blood flow to supply muscles and tissues.

Reducing stress in the connective tissues

Sports massage therapists additionally perform manipulation and stretches on the muscles fibres and connective  tissues, with the aim of releasing stress and built-up pressure. Intense sports training can cause tissues to become hard and inflexible. Stretching the muscle tissues can help to reverse this inflexibility.

Reducing stress and anxiety

Sports massage is useful for reducing anxiety and stress, which helps to improve mood and overall sports performance.

Sports Massage Information 

Before booking a course of  therapy, it’s worth bearing in mind whether it’s the right treatment for you. We also offer deep tissue massage as a service at Bodytonic, and there are similarities between the two services.

A good course of remedial massage and deep tissue therapy can help to alleviate chronic pain, stiffness or tension. Deep  massage treatment will often seek to simply relieve muscle pain, tightness and abnormality as well as relieve stress and promote overall wellbeing. However, it also has rehabilitation benefits for people who are seeking relief from sports-related injuries.

By contrast sports massage therapy is more carefully tailored to treating the common muscle injuries, strains and weaknesses brought about by regular sporting or athletic activity. However, it is worth mentioning that you do not have to be a professional athlete to benefit from sports massage therapy.

  • Both sports massage and deep tissue therapy use firm pressure to release reduce muscle tension, improve circulation and promote overall flexibility.
  • Both therapies are helpful in improving overall physical and physiological wellbeing, as well as reducing overall stress and anxiety.
  • Deep tissue and sports massage are both treatments which can help the body recover from physical injury.
  • During a sports massage however, the massage therapist might utilise a wider range of techniques, including active and passive stretching to help realign and loosen muscle fibres.

Frequently Asked Questions

“What is the difference between Swedish Massage and Sports Massage?”

Swedish massage techniques are typically long, slow and gentle massage strokes. It is used to promote psychological and emotional well-being. It also reduces stress and creates a state of relaxation. The techniques used in Swedish massage are very similar to those used during a sports massage, however, the main difference being that sports massage tends to focus on a particular muscle group and involves greater pressure to work deeper into the tissues, which in turn produces greater effects.

Overuse injuries can occur in everyday life through repetitive everyday actions. This can include reaching for high shelves. Tension and tightness can also build up through poor posture whilst driving or sitting at a desk. Therefore, following consultation and treatment, we will try to identify what day to day activities could be the cause of any particular issues you are having.
