Sports Massage is a broad term encompassing three different types of massages having different techniques and different benefits and given at different times.
A pre-event sports massage is given before a workout or a sporting competition. It is usually given on the day of the event and is not more 10-15 minutes in duration. The main aim of the therapist giving a pre-event massage is to mentally boost the athlete and reduce his anxiety before the competition. The therapist mainly stretches and loosens large areas of the athlete’s muscles to increase joint mobility, improve blood circulation, flexibility thereby aiding in improving performance.

Post-event massage is given after the sporting event and is aimed at faster recovery by reducing pain and inflammation in the muscles, muscles soreness, stiffness and fatigue. It is usually given 24-48 hrs after the exercise or sporting event. Our Massage Centres in Chennai can help you recover faster from many sports injuries like shoulder injuries, ligament tear etc.
A maintenance massage is given at least once a week as a regular part of an athlete’s training program. This massage aims to improve flexibility, relieve muscle tightness and reduce any chance of injury.
Now that the benefits of a sports massage have been established the next important question is how frequently should athletes schedule their therapy sessions?
Of course, the budget and time one has are important factors while deciding the frequency of a sports massage. Besides these factors, the frequency of getting a massage depends on how often and how hard the athlete is training. However, irrespective of a sporting event, getting a sports massage once or twice a month can be highly beneficial for an athlete. This helps to keep the muscles supple and loose and the body energised and in optimum condition. More regular sessions are needed if the athlete has some problems like injuries, knots or muscle pulls.
