Sports Massage: Helping You Stay in the Game
Athletic activity at any level—from morning jogs to intense interval training—can affect the body and lead to injury. Check out Groupon’s guide to the massage specifically designed to keep active bodies safe._
Compared to most other modalities, sports massage is more targeted, focusing more on relieving specific muscles and tissues, such as hip flexors or ankles. Therapists tailor each session to the body’s specific needs, but sessions often consist of a combination of long, flowing effleurage and petrissage strokes—with an emphasis on depth and pressure—and deep transverse friction massage. Such techniques might accomplish a variety of tasks, such as increasing circulation before a workout, loosening the joints, or improving flexibility and range of motion. Sports massage can also help ease the soreness that often arrives days after completing an intense workout or lying on a couch that’s slightly too short.
