Repetitive and aggressive movements in daily sports training can stress specific parts of the body. In order to find relief from worsening and/or tight muscles and tendons, athletes opt for sports massage therapy. Unlike any other types of massage, this technique is specific to the athlete’s sport of choice. It concentrates on areas of the body that are typically overused and stressed.
Sports massage helps condition an athlete’s body so it won’t easily be injured during training and actual games or competition. It’s also a great means to cool down the body after exertion. Sports massage promotes optimum mental focus and reduces fatigue through relaxation. It can ultimately improve the overall performance of an athlete. But the key ability of sports massage technique is targeting muscle-tendon junctions. It can help improve a hip-flexor range of motion and relieves muscle soreness in just a 30-minute session.
