3 Incredible Ways Massage Therapy Benefits Athletes, Manhattan, New York

Anyone can benefit from massage therapy, but it is particularly advantageous for athletes. From overworked muscles to sports-related injuries, intense levels of physical fitness can take a toll on the body. If you’re an athlete based in New York City, the professionals from J Train can perform targeted holistic services to help you stay in the game.

Below, they provide a few ways seeing a massage therapist can provide tremendous benefits for athletes:

1. Relief

Pain is a byproduct of rigorous exercise, so it’s no surprise virtually every type of athlete experiences sports-related pain at one point or another. Whether you’ve been pushing yourself at the gym recently or are training for a competitive event, massages can work the tension out of your muscles for unparalleled pain relief.

2. Recovery

Ideally, you should schedule massage therapy within 72 hours after competing to support healthy blood flow and encourage muscles to relax, both of which are essential to making as successful a recovery as possible.

3. Prevention

Deep tissue massages can help muscles stay loose and limber, which may help keep injuries at bay. When received regularly, massage therapy is a form of preventative maintenance for athletes, as it can reduce tension and stiffness in muscles to support peak performance. For serious athletes, especially those prone to injuries, it’s a way to safeguard their training regimen and avoid getting sidelined by muscle strain or similar setbacks.

If you have a sports event approaching or are looking for a healthy and holistic way to support muscle health, give the incredible massage therapy services from J Train a try. Call (212) 255-2570 to schedule an appointment today. To learn more about their additional fitness and nutrition services, you can also visit their website and like them on Facebook.
