Sports massage services are specially designed to help the body recover and prepare for future activities.
While massage is often advertised for its emotional benefits like relaxation, there are lots of different types of massage, and all of the different forms have a variety of benefits. Massage is a regulated health service. At Active Integrative Medicine, one of our popular offerings is a sport massage. Our sports massage services are specially designed to help the body recover and prepare for future activities. Our registered massage therapists have specific training to deliver sport massages, as well as other types of massages.
A sports massage can help with recovering from recent physical activities. It also has the potential to improve future performance and reduce the likelihood of future injuries. Other benefits include:
- Reduced muscular tension, which can alleviate pain and decrease the likelihood of injury
- Improved joint mobility and flexibility, improving performance and preventing injury
- Increased circulation
- Improved lymphatic drainage
- Reduced pain sensations and discomfort
- Calmed nervous system, reduced stress, and increased feelings of wellbeing
Sports massages aren’t just for athletes, either. If you have everyday occupational stresses on your body, suffer from chronic pain or muscular overuse, or need to recover from an injury, we may recommend a sports massage. You will appreciate the positive impact on both your emotional and physical wellbeing.
If you live in Pickering, Ontario and are interested in a one-time sport massage or ongoing massage services, don’t hesitate to reach out to us to schedule an appointment at our health and wellness clinic.
