What Are The Benefits Women Get With A Sports Massage?

If you are a woman and trying to figure out what the benefits of sports massage are, then read on.

You’ll have less pain in your body

Sports massage can be great for people that suffer from chronic pain such as arthritis or fibromyalgia. The goal is to help release tight muscles so they don’t put pressure on tendons and nerves which lead to soreness, discomfort, and sometimes flare-ups or worsening symptoms.

Reduced anxiety levels

Since it helps with mental clarity by elevating moods and reducing stress hormones like cortisol in the bloodstream, this makes sense why women would want a sports massage during pregnancy when their hormone levels aren’t at normal fluctuations while pregnant. This will also make any pregnant woman feel like they are in control of their body.


You’ll be able to move more

When your muscles are tight, it’s hard for them to contract and release properly which can lead to serious injuries or chronic pain that feels out of reach. Sports massage will help you strengthen the right muscles while releasing tension from overworked ones so that you’ll have an easier time moving around without injury.

You’ll sleep better at night

Sleep deprivation is a common side effect of many health conditions such as arthritis, fibromyalgia, diabetes type II, depression and anxiety disorders. A sports massage therapist wants to know if there are any medical reasons why you aren’t sleeping well because this could make a difference with treatment options.

More mobility and less pain

Sports massage is a relaxing form of therapy that can help you feel better in your body. It will also improve the range of motion which will lead to increased flexibility, improved strength, reduced fatigue and an overall sense of well-being. If all this isn’t enough reason to book yourself a sports massage with a qualified therapist then we don’t know what is!

Top 4 myths about sports massage

There are many myths that exist about sports massage and we want to debunk them for you. Here are the top five most common misconceptions:

1. Sports massage is just for competitive athletes.

Truth: It’s not just for professional athletes, anyone who participates in recreational sports or work activities can benefit from a treatment session with an experienced therapist. This includes parents and caregivers of young children as well as office workers and professionals that have desk jobs; all are at risk of chronic pain which will lead to more acute injuries over time if left untreated.

The benefits above show how it’s great for both genders but we’ll specifically talk about the differences between men and women when they come in for a session because there are some interesting observations worth noting!

2. Women should avoid getting massages altogether during pregnancy due to research linking back strain to premature deliveries.

Truth: There is no scientific evidence linking pregnancy back strain to premature deliveries but it could be linked to pelvic girdle pain. This is something you’ll want to discuss with your doctor before booking a session.

3. Myth: Women should only get massages when they’ve had an appointment for prenatal care and have been cleared by their physician first.

Truth: At the very least, make sure that you tell them about any medical conditions such as arthritis or fibromyalgia so they can better understand what type of pressure points work best for these types of diagnoses and how much time per area needs to be spent on massage versus heat therapy treatments. They may also ask you if there are any other reasons why you’re seeking out this type of therapy.

4. Myth: Men should avoid getting massages altogether during the summer months because it will cause them to sweat more than usual and lead to heat stroke.

Truth: For many people, a sports massage can be a great way to cool down in the summertime over time as well as reduce stress levels that have been elevated due to things like work or home life; this leads to better sleep quality which is key for overall health regardless of gender. If you’re going into your first session feeling really hot and sweaty there’s no need to worry about being turned away from treatment but try coming back when you’ve had a chance for some hydration since they may ask if you’re currently dehydrated and may need to adjust treatments accordingly.

As you can see, there are many benefits to getting a sports massage. If you’re interested in learning more about the health and wellness of your muscles, or just want an excuse for some much-needed relaxation, look no further than Sports Massage Therapy!
