What is a Sports Massage

A sports massage is a specialized massage therapy treatment for people who perform strenuous work with their bodies and need targeted relief. Often, athletic trainers provide sports massage, because of their specialized knowledge. People who might request a sports massage include:


  • Athletes
  • Fitness instructors
  • Martial artists
  • Construction workers
  • Bodybuilders

What Does a Sports Massage Therapist Target

A sports massage therapist targets parts of the body that need special attention from working out certain muscle groups. The direction of a sports massage session will depend on the individual, but here are some common areas of concern:

  • Shoulder, neck, and back
  • Calves and thighs
  • Sprained joints
  • Feet and ankles

Benefits of Sports Massage

Along with being generally relaxing, sports massage can help individuals excel in their field, heal faster from injuries, and get relief from pain. Here are five of the top benefits people experience from sports massage therapy:


Improved Posture

One of the more subtle benefits of sports massage is improved posture, thanks to the increase in blood flow and mobility. Improve your form and positioning for activities like running, swimming, gymnastics, and other sports.


Increased Mobility

If you suffer from joint pain or a limited range of motion, sports massage can help increase your mobility. This in turn, helps athletes improve in their sport.


Decreased Pressure & Muscle Tightness

Like deep tissue or Swedish massage, sports massage relieves muscle tightness and pressure. Regular sessions can be particularly helpful if you’re prone to muscle spasms, cramps, strains, and discomfort after a workout.


Muscle Recovery

After an intense workout, your muscles get to work repairing tiny tears through regeneration. Sports massage can help speed up this recovery process by encouraging blood flow to these muscles.


Increased Flexibility

Assisted stretching is one of the most important parts of sports massage therapy, as it can help restore and improve flexibility. Your sports massage therapist can also provide at-home stretches to continue improvement. 

Clients also report a wide variety of other benefits, such as:

  • Better sleep
  • Injury prevention
  • Lymphatic drainage
  • Stress relief
