Having a massage before or after the game can have a huge physical and emotional impact on the quality of your performance and recuperation. Here are some of the benefits that massage therapy can provide:
- Enhances flexibility – If you’re having a hard time perfecting your swing or if you have tight muscles, then including a massage in your schedule is a must. It helps relax your muscles in order for your body to become more flexible and for your tight muscles to loosen up which helps you move freely through your game. It also lessens injuries that you might suffer because of hypotonic or tight muscles.
- Stimulates blood flow – A massage before a game stimulates healthy blood flow, and minimizes pain and muscle soreness after a game. It also helps your muscles and mind to relax before the game so you’re focused and able to play your best game.
- Strengthens your body’s weak points – Massage therapy can also help you strengthen weak points including hips, shoulders, hands and legs. That is the reason why massage therapy before a game is a must; it’s a great way to prepare to ensure your best performance!
