How Often Should Athletes Get A Sports Maintenance Massage?

Sports Maintenance Massage is often used for athletes who are recovering from injury, but also as a preventative measure of keeping athletes in top shape. This type of massage focuses on muscle groups that will be called upon during the event and addresses issues such as pain, inflammation, and spasms. It’s not uncommon to hear athletes talking about how they need a massage. Whether it be after a game or practice, many athletes are interested in getting regular maintenance massages. It depends on the person and their activities. Below is a list of how often should athletes get a Sports Maintenance Massage:

Athletes Who Train Once A Day

    If you’re in this category you may be getting one Sports Maintenance Massage per week depending on how often your body needs it – which is something we’ll determine when scheduling your massage treatment with us. You might even consider two Sports Maintenance Massages in a row so that we can really give your muscles what they need to function optimally for another big day on the field or court.

Athletes Who Train Twice A Day

    If you’re an athlete who trains twice a day, Sports Maintenance Massage will likely be recommended at least every other week since recovery is key to performing your best with no injuries whatsoever. Training more than once per day can cause tight muscles and soreness from not having time between training sessions to properly recover.  Sports Maintenance Massage can help alleviate this by relieving muscle tension and addressing any injuries you may have developed.

Athletes Who Train Three Times A Day    

    If you’re an athlete who trains three times per day, Sports Maintenance Massage will be recommended at least twice a week (and sometimes more depending on how much training you do each day). Sports Maintenance Massages are used to address tight muscles that aren’t allowing your body to function as it should- leading to fatigue or injury. This is why Sports Maintenance Massages help athletes train better, recover faster, and perform their best.

    There are many reasons why athletes recommend getting Sports Maintenance Massage, but the most important is to keep your muscles healthy. If you’ve been training once a day or twice a day for months on end without taking time off, your body will likely require some serious muscle repair. The same goes if you train three times per day.  Get in touch with us today and we’ll set up a consultation.
