Event massage can be performed for an athlete pre-, intra or post-event.
This specific treatment is given before a sports event, anywhere from 15 minutes up to 24-48hrs before.
Pre-event treatment is a light massage that compliments a thorough warm-up. Various techniques can be used to stimulate and stretch the muscles and encourage blood flow with an overall aim to benefit performance and reduce injury risk.
Intra-event massage is completed between matches or events, short in duration and light in pressure/depth. It focuses on the main muscle groups used.
The primary purpose of a post-event massage is recovery. This can be given 15 minutes and up to 2 days after a sports event. Massage helps to relax muscles and restore flexibility. It improves circulation, increasing the removal of lactic acid and toxins. A quicker recovery allows a return to training without/ reduced stiffness and soreness.
