Sports massage is a combination of table stretching, deep tissue, and relaxation massage. It focuses on areas of the body that are over used and stressed from repetitive and aggressive movement. It is geared toward athletes of all kinds and levels. The massage will be tailored to the client’s needs, their fitness goals, and their sport of choice. A key aspect of sports massage compared to other types of massage is its ability to target muscle tendon connections. In the last few years, sports massage has been gaining in popularity and is seen as a important component in a balanced fitness and training regime.
When is the best time to have a sports massage in Bishop?
Ideally, sports massage is done for 3-4 days before your event. That way your body has time to adjust to changes from massage during a time you need to be competitive. In addition to pre-event massage, many people use the benefits of sports massage as part of their fitness regime and schedule regular weekly, bi-weekly or monthly appointments. Sports massage can also be used as a part of active recovery from injury. When you experience an injury, we can work closely with you and any other health professionals you are also seeing, including your physician, physical therapist, chiropractor or acupuncturist.
