Techniques of Sports Massage Therapy

A variety of techniques are employed by our sports massage therapists, depending on the nature of the injury/condition and the requirements of the athlete. Some of the common techniques used by them include:


A massage therapist uses the palm of their hands to lightly stroke the impacted part, as per this technique. The direction of the stroke is always towards the heart to reduce any swelling and improve blood flow.


In this technique, the therapist employs a kneading massage movement to compress the muscle. They use the padded palmar surface of their hand, apart from finger and thumbs, for this massage.


This technique is generally adopted in the case of pre-event massages (for the preparation of the game/event). Muscles are stimulated by hacking and cupping.


As the name suggests, a shaking and vibration effect is created onto the muscles. It serves the purpose of soothing and relaxing the muscles.


This technique is suitable for athletes who have suffered from an injury to muscle, ligament or tendon. It quickens the healing process as deep muscle tissues are penetrated by friction movements. Some therapists combine this technique with effleurage for the purpose of warming up the affected muscles.

Deep Tissue Massage Therapy

Deep Tissue Massage Therapy is used for intense pain and muscle tension caused by sports injuries or accidents. It targets connective tissues and deeper layers of muscles. It also aids healing and tissue recovery.

In some cases, sports massage therapists can use a combination of these techniques taking into account the condition of the athlete or person.

Benefits of Sports Massage

Relaxing and Soothe the Body

Sports massage therapy can help to relax and soothe the body. It does so by activating the parasympathetic system. When the body is relaxed, it can help to improve the performance of the athlete.

Helps to Provide Relief from Stress

Another key benefit of sports massage is that it can help to de-stress the body. The ill-effects of stress are known to one and all. Stress hampers their performance on the field, apart from impacting one’s quality of life. With the help of massage therapy, stress hormones produced in the body reduces.

Improved Blood Flow

Massage therapy helps to improve blood flow in the body. As it assists in relaxing muscles, blood supply gets increased. This, in turn, allows the vital nutrients to reach different parts of the body.

Tackles Blood Pressure Issues

Since massage therapy helps to lower stress and tension, it can help lower blood pressure. Also, it improves the performance of the vascular system. This is another added benefit that keeps the patient protected against blood pressure issues.

Lowers Muscle Soreness

Getting muscle soreness is not uncommon, particularly if you are working out for the first time or have played sports after a gap. In this case, the individual experiences delayed onset of muscle soreness – DOMS. Sports massage therapy can help to deal with this issue. As part of the massage therapy, muscle tissue will be relaxed and any lactic acid removed more effectively from the muscles.

Increased Activity of the Lymph System

With massage therapy, lymph system activity is increased. Not many people know about this but the lymph system is quite important for our well-being. If there’s no lymph system, our body will swell up. The purpose of this system is to collect excess fluid and lactic acid and return it to the blood. Also, it enables the body to fight the symptoms of many diseases.

Quick Healing

One of the major benefits of sports massage is that it aids quick healing. Therefore, you can be back on the field, performing to the best of your abilities in no time.
