The Healing Art of a Sports Massage

Athletes are often well trained on how to avoid injury, but it’s often just a matter of time before a muscle is pulled, an ankle is sprained or worse. Sports injuries are painful, but if they aren’t cared for properly, they can also result in serious long-term problems and possibly cause a premature halt to a promising career.

A sports massage is a means of preventing and/or healing sports injuries. The benefits of a sports massage include:

  • Improvement of range of motion.
  • Prevention of injuries to muscles and tendons.
  • A boost of energy and endurance.
  • Promotion of endorphin release, thereby reducing pain caused by constricted muscle fibers.
  • Increase in the flow of lymph fluid, which filters out toxins and waste products.
  • The release of muscle tensions and the restoration of balance to the musculoskeletal system.
  • Cleansing the body of excess lactic acid and easing knots.
  • Maintenance of muscle and ligament elasticity.
