Benefits of having sports massage

There are benefits if you perform it before physical activity, such as activating blood circulation or realigning the fibers, favoring muscular elasticity. You can also do it after exercise: to reduce accumulated fatigue or help the body recover for the next activity. To make matters worse, sports massage promotes concentration, introspection, and mood of the athlete.

It has different effects depending on whether it is preparatory, recovery or maintenance.

Massage is one of the most recommended physiotherapeutic techniques for occasional or high-performance athletes. It is very important to properly use ointments, creams or oils for analgesic or anti-inflammatory effects. For example, rosemary oil, chamomile oil, arnica cream, menthol cream or glycerin with alcohol.

Each massage varies depending on the sport that is practiced because the muscles work differently whether it is flexibility, resistance, strength or speed. If you are going to perform a sports massage, we recommend modulating rhythm, speed, and depth depending on your goal.
