Sports Massage At Home

As sports people we tend to push our bodies hard, short-changing it on recovery and sleep in the quest of balancing work, life and sport.

Blys Therapists have years of experience in sports massage and have worked with some of the most elite clubs in Australia.

Sports Massage uses the same techniques as Remedial Massage, but is applied to sports people or people who does regular training.

The key to a good sports and remedial massage is to effect a change in the tissues and then to ensure any rehab exercises are effective in changing the structure of the body back to a more normal state.

Sports massage is useful as part of an overall sporting regime in order to reduce the risk of injury, improve flexibility and encourage relaxation.

FAQs

WHAT IS A SPORTS MASSAGE?

A sports massage is a targeted, rehabilitative therapy. It is usually focused on a particular area of the client’s concern. Sports massage is popular of athletes, sports people and those who are active in their everyday lives.

WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT SPORTS MASSAGE TECHNIQUES?

The sports massage techniques that your massage therapist will use is determined by the focus area. Sports massage techniques may be associated with a remedial massage or deep tissue massage, including kneading and muscle stripping. Other sports massage techniques include friction, which warms the muscles to prepare them to be manipulated, and compressions, which is a hold-and-release sports massage technique.

WHAT TO LOOK FOR IN A SPORTS MASSAGE THERAPIST?

While all Blys massage therapists are qualified and experienced in a range of massage therapies, there are some who specialise in sports massage. A sports massage therapist may have a background in the sporting field, whether that be as an athlete themself, sports physiotherapist, or those who work with athletes and sports professionals on a regular basis. Blys massage therapists are thoroughly vetted, so rest assured that all sports massage therapists are knowledgable and experienced in their chosen field.

WHO WOULD BENEFIT FROM A SPORTS MASSAGE?

Sports massage therapy is popular among professional sportspeople, athletes, frequently gym-goers and other active people. Labourers, mothers with young children, and anyone who frequently exerts their body can benefit from a targetted sports massage, too. You don’t have to be sporty to have a sports massage.

WHO SHOULD NOT GET A SPORTS MASSAGE?

A sports massage can be an intense therapy and is usually selected for rehabilitation and muscle recovery. Clients of sports massages typically implement them into a larger physical or workout routine to improve overall performance and recovery time. If you are pregnant, or experience any adverse health conditions such as blood clots (thrombophlebitis or deep vein thrombosis), osteoporosis, cancer, or have recently undergone surgery, you must consult your doctor before you enquire about any kind of massage therapy

WHAT ARE THE POTENTIAL BENEFITS OF SPORTS MASSAGE?

The benefits of a sports massage include injury recouperation, muscle recovery, increased mobility and flexibility, alleivation of stiffness and pain, decreased healing time and overall improved quality of life. Including a sports massage into your regular wellness routine will promote healthy muscles, joints and ligaments to help you reach pique physical performance.

ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS OF SPORTS MASSAGE?

Sports massage is a remedial form of therapy, therefore there are some sports massage side effects. This can include stiffness, soreness or bruising after your massage, though this will alleviate 24-48 hours after your session. The discomfort you may experience post-massage is the proof that your sports massage has affected your muscles adequately.

HOW SHALL I PREPARE FOR A SPORTS MASSAGE?

Since a sports massage can be performed before, during or after your workout or lifestyle routine, your body may be in different conditions when you are ready to receive it. Always ensure that you are well hydrated before any massage to keep the muscles supple and workable. Be aware of any limitations or places you would like your sports massage therapist to work on in particular and communicate these prior to your sports massage.

WHAT SHALL I EXPECT DURING A SPORTS MASSAGE?

You should expect your sport massage to challenge your muscles. As a remedial massage therapy, sports massage is designed to target your problem areas, such as your legs, shoulders, arms or back. These areas may be sore, stiff, tight or painful and while a sports massage will help to iron out knots, you may not feel the results immediately. Sports massage benefits may arise 24-48 hours post-massage, so don’t get off the table thinking your sports massage was pointless.

HOW SHALL I FEEL AFTER A SPORTS MASSAGE?

After your sports massage you may experience an improvement in mobility and flexibility. Immediately post-massage you may feel sore or stiff, and some bruising may develop in the areas your therapist has targeted. This is normal. Any discomfort or tension you feel after your sports massage should alleviate over the next 24-48 hours, after which time you’ll enjoy the full benefits of your sports massage.

DOES SPORTS MASSAGE HURT?

The areas your sports massage therapist will work on will be areas in which your muscles are tight, stiff or knotted. Sports massage is a remedial therapy. The most effective way to restore the muscles’ maximum potential is to work them thoroughly by kneading, stripping, compressing, etc. If you are experiencing unreasonable sports massage pain, let your therapist know immediately so they can adjust their pressure and position.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A SPORTS MASSAGE AND A REMEDIAL MASSAGE?

Sports massage is a form of remedial massage. It is different from deep tissue massage in that it is a specialised form of recouperative therapy. The purpose of a sports massage is to restore muscle flexibility and mobility, increase muscle potential and reduce recovery time. Remedial deep tissue massage works the deep layers of fascia to provide immediate relief from pain or discomfort. When debating sports massage vs remedial massage, ask yourself what the purpose of your massage needs to be.

Strongest pressure out of the ladies (& some of the men lol) Excellent attention to detail on my neck & glutes especially. She used her fingers as much as elbows, without losing any pressure.
