A deep tissue sports massage employs techniques focusing on relieving sports injuries and targeting muscular performance.
The muscles, tendons, ligaments, and circulatory systems can all benefit from regular massage. A trained sports massage therapist will identify your areas of concern and focus on specific muscles using a range of targeted massage techniques.
Here’s what to expect at your first sports massage.
The massage therapist will ask you questions about your physical activity and fitness regime to better understand your needs. Be prepared to discuss your concerns and explain how various physical activities cause you pain or discomfort.
You will also need to disclose your medication or pre-existing medical conditions to your therapist so they may tailor your treatment based on any contraindications or any adverse effects you may have.
For example, your massage may include techniques such as cupping, wringing or hacking that may cause some discomfort to the skin. However, uncomfortable sensations are expected; deep tissue massage techniques improve your overall muscle tone, blood circulation and lymphatic drainage.
Always ask the therapist to decrease their pressure if you are experiencing pain during the massage.
During a deep tissue massage, a medium to firm pressure is used to the deep layers of muscle fibres, deep muscles, tendons, and fascia. It is beneficial in releasing chronic muscle tension.
It is usual for your muscles to feel slightly tender after a deep tissue sports massage; this is because the muscle fibres are stretched and displaced during the massage, and they can feel somewhat swollen afterwards. In addition, professional massage techniques release a lot of tension in tight muscles, improving your sleep.
Rest your muscles after a massage and enjoy their relaxed state until your next workout.
