Why You Need a Sports Massage

sport-massageA Sports massage is for professional athletes and triathletes, right?!  I merely play social league softball or an occasional 10k race for charity…

 

Sports massage is designed for any type of athlete from the professional to the weekend warrior, and can be custom designed to a specific sport, which is even better for the casual athlete.

 

At Scents of Serenity Organic Spa of Richmond, VA we specialize in sports massage, and can custom tailor a massage therapy session to a particular sport, such as a ‘runners massage’ or a ‘golf massage’, focusing the stretching and muscle work on key areas of concern. This provides a great number of benefits, including:

  • reduced muscle fatigue
  • improved endurance
  • increased flexibility

Targeted passive stretching will help to encourage muscle memory, reducing long term injury. If you are training for an event such as the Richmond Marathon, we recommend regular massage therapy before and after the event to minimize pain and strengthen your training.

 

In addition, you can enhance your massage with doTERRA Essential Oils such our Deep Blue blend which has healing essential oils such as Helichrysum, Blue Tansy and Camphor which not only reduces inflammation but actively promotes muscle repair.
