When to Get A Sports Massage

The sports massage is designed to assist athletes endure the rigors of physical exertion and keep their bodies functioning at a high level. While you don’t need to be an athlete to benefit from these massages, sports enthusiasts, workout warriors and people you engage in physical fitness often rely on them. A sports massage can help prevent or heal injuries, strains and mitigate body aches.

Many athletes integrate sports massages right into their training routines. For example, Olympic Gold Medalist Michael Phelps benefited from two sports massages per day. NFL stars also set a weekly schedule of massages that varies throughout the season. These top athletes find that regularly scheduled sports massages keep them competing at an elevated level. Your particular type of training and exercise should dictate when and how often you get massages. Consider these four types of when planning a regimen.

  • Pre-Exertion Massage: This short massage is generally done 15-45 minutes before a competition or sporting event to stimulate and relax primary areas.

  • Restorative Massage: These are often scheduled on a regular basis to help enhance training and reduce the risk of injury.
  • Rehabilitative Massage: Scheduled to alleviate pain and inflammation resulting from sports-related activities.

It’s important to consult with an experienced sports massage therapist to put together a plan that supports your athletic endeavors and health goals.

Sports Massage Techniques

Anytime you push your body, it will need time and help to recuperate. Stiff muscles and joints tend to linger and inhibit the next training session. The Matrix Spa & Massage therapists use a variety of techniques to alleviate discomfort and get you up and running again. These include:

  • Deep Tissue Trigger Point Pressure: When employing this technique, a certified therapist will apply pressure with the combined second and third fingers, knuckles or thumb. They press deeply for approximately 10 seconds into trigger points in muscles and around joints. This method may be repeated 2-3 times before moving on to another area.
  • Cross Fiber Strokes: This technique involves using the thumb to fan across tight muscles to help reduce soreness and release tension. The broad strokes are particularly effective on large muscles groups and scar tissue.
  • Compression Movement: Therapists use this technique to loosen up large muscle groups. It is done with open palm pressure and often follows deep tissue massage.
  • Jostling: The technique is very much like it sounds. A therapist will grip a muscle and shake it for approximately 10 seconds. It is designed to eliminate muscle cramps and stiffness.

Cupping Therapy

Michael Phelps earned a record 28 Olympic medals and more gold than any athlete in history. During his epic run, it came to light that he is a strong proponent of cupping therapy. That endorsement has piqued a great deal of interest in athletic circles.

The 5,000-year-old technique has emerged as a popular option for contemporary American athletes because it delivers many benefits. Some of those benefits include:

  • Improved blood flow
  • Opening lymphatic pathways
  • Muscle relaxation
  • Pain relief
  • Deep tissue release

Cupping Therapy involves the application of negative pressure and massage techniques with a suction cup. The device is positioned over a targeted area and the tissue is vacuumed up into it. Therapists can manipulate the level of suction to meet the stimulation needs of each individual client. Although a few marks were noticed during Phelps’ extraordinary 2016 games, bruising isn’t a factor when properly conducted. Cupping Therapy can be an excellent asset to integrate into a sports massage therapy program.

Frequently Asked Questions About Sports Massage in Salt Lake City

Sports massage is a form of bodywork created for athletes and those with an active lifestyle. It is used to drain away fatigue, prepare the body for peak performance and maintain it in optimal performance, promote flexibility, prevent injuries and help athletes recover from workouts and soft tissue injuries. Sports massage can be done pre-event, post-event and for maintenance during athletic events.
The frequency of getting a sports massage will depend on several factors. These include training intensity and volume, the presence of injury or chronic pain, among others. While some people will benefit greatly from a weekly massage, others will only get it occasionally when in pain. Getting a series of sports massages is one of the best ways to establish how often you need the massage.
Most sports massage therapists charge an hourly rate for this service. In 2019, the average cost of a regular sports massage ranges from $75 to $100 an hour. However, the price will vary by region, whether you want additional specials and if the therapist offers special intro rates.
Yes, indirectly. One of the benefits sports massages is that it can help your body achieve higher efficiency in terms of speed, strength, and performance. By decreasing pain, increasing circulation, increasing range of motion, relieving knots, minimizing stiffness and decreasing the negative after-effects of intense training, the massage allows you to train harder. This makes it possible for you to excel to levels you never thought possible.
Just as the name suggests, a pre-event sports massage is used prior to an activity to prepare the body for physical exertion and sporting activity. A pre-event sports massage can be done from up to 2 days to two hours before the event. The massage increase circulation of blood and nutrients to working muscles, helping to reduce the risk of injury. It also helps to stretch muscles, helps the individual to relax and focus on performance.
Yes. Sports massage has been found to drastically reduce recovery time as well as the negative after-effects of hard training. It also helps to reduce the swelling associated with soft tissue injuries and contributes to the formation of soft, pliable scar tissue. This form of massage locates and deactivates “trigger points” occasioned by the original trauma.
In most cases, runners knee is damaged tissue around the knee area. A light massage around the area can make a huge difference. Sports massage will promote blood flow to the knee area and help tight muscles and tendons loosen up.
With the numerous benefits of sports massage, there are times when it will help with a range of problems. While a visit to a sports massage therapist will see you enjoy some relief if you had tight or painful muscles, you should not expect permanent relief immediately. The good news is that an experienced sports massage therapist will assess your situation and help design a program that will help you overcome them in the shortest time possible.

Massage Therapy FAQ’s

The law always requires that you be appropriately covered with sheets or towels to keep you comfortable and warm. If you start feeling uncomfortable or exposed, speak up. Your therapist will respect your wishes and work with you to make the massage session a comfortable one.
No, only undress as much as you are comfortable with. Some people prefer undressing completely, while others prefer to keep undergarments on. You'll have privacy in your massage room to undress before the session and redress afterwards.
It depends on your massage therapy goals. Some people get a monthly massage to manage stress or to prevent health problems. Others opt for weekly sessions if they need relief from injuries and chronic tension.
Licensing and certification mean that the massage therapist can legally practice massage in your city or state. To get this license, they must have performed several hours of training at an accredited school, past the extensive licensure exam, and have paid any relevant licensing fees.
Every insurance plan works a little differently, so your best bet is to contact your insurer directly. Some plans do cover alternative therapies including chiropractic and massage. You will likely need a doctor's prescription first. If you don't have health insurance, or if it doesn't cover massage therapy, you can find massage therapy coupons and discounts on our site.
How much depends on how pleased you are with the service and how much the massage costs (the full price, not any discounted fees). One easy trick is to think about how you would tip a waiter after a similarly priced restaurant meal. This is often 15-20% or more if you received exceptional service.
Let your massage therapist know before the session if there are areas on your body that you don't want to be touched. They will have the training and experience to give you a therapeutic massage while working around ticklish or sensitive places like your feet or abdomen.
Yes, absolutely. You should always speak up if something is uncomfortable. Secondly, keep the lines of communication open during deep tissue massage or sports injury massages. Your therapist needs the feedback to work on you properly and without aggravating an injury. On the other hand, if you are looking for relaxation, it's often best not to talk unless necessary. This lets your mind as well as your body release tension. With the right mindful breathing technique, you may even achieve a stress relieving meditative state during the massage.
Most likely, unless your doctor says otherwise. Prenatal massage can reduce and relieve common pregnancy issues like lower and upper back pain, sciatic nerve irritation, swelling, tension headaches, heartburn and constipation, and more. Let your massage therapist know that you're pregnant so they can use the right techniques during the session.

I happened to be in Slc area for the day and decided I needed a massage. I booked the 90 minute deep tissue massage and they got me booked in with less than a 45 minute notice to my surprise! There was nice calming music and the receptionist was very friendly. Jacque my therapist was very knowledgeable and professional in her work. She asked about the problematic areas and made sure to put some extra effort into them. That was the best massage I have ever received, you just can’t put a price on the pain relief I experienced I will most certainly be back!

I have known the owner of Matrix Spa & Massage for decades, long before her business was even a dream. I marvel at her success in growing a 5-star spa. From my first step through the door I am greeted by a welcoming, informative, happy-to-serve-you receptionist. The environment is peaceful, calming, inviting throughout my visit. I have had the privilege of many massages from owner Julieta Hernandez. She demonstrates brilliance in creating a business that develops exceptional therapists in a nourishing environment. Aches diminish. Massages never disappoint. Thank you for the comfort and relief. Unbeatable.

One day I had a terrible massage on my anniversary and when I emailed the spa they took care of me with a make up massage. The second massage was with Troy and it was absolutely amazing. He listened to everything I asked of him and was one of the best massages I have had in a long time. Troy and Julieta (the owner) are the reasons I will be back!

I have been going to Matrix for many years. Before that I had been going from spa to spa looking for a place that was consistent, and finally found Matrix.

I love Matrix Spa. I love the ambiance of the spa and it has a very "hole-in-the-wall" feel which makes me feel more at home and less like a doctor's office. I have always felt comfortable there. The massages have been fantastic, I usually go to Jacqueline. Would highly recommend this spa. Also, I feel that their prices are very competitive and reasonable.

I called one morning to ask about a walk in. The receptionist was kind enough to call in one of the massage therapists who was there within 30 minutes to accommodate me. She did a fantastic job on my tense muscles. She knew when to upgrade me to the expert package because of all the knots I had all over my body. I have since had better pain relief since my massage there and I am looking forward to my next appointment. Definitely recommend this place for anyone who wants a skilled therapist who knows what she is doing.

This place deserves more than 5 stars!!!

I've been having massages from the owner over 19 yrs. She has an awesome story coming from Mexico working to build her own business. She's an extremely hard worker to have the business she has. She gives her all to me after all these yrs. She personally trains her staff once they come to work for her. No matter what few who put her business down for any reason, it's probably a lie! She use to work 7 days a week! I had a horrible accident 59 yrs ago & broke all my bones in my body except arms & legs. She's been the one who has gotten me thought the worse of times when I was in so much pain. I've moved 10 yrs ago & haven't found anyone like her. I come back through the summer & if she's available, she works on me! The spa is really nice before a massage to loosen my muscles! I wish her success for the rest of her life! Luv u, Julietta

I should preface my review by saying that I have been having true therapeutic massage for over 15 years of my life and have had a variety of very skilled therapists in the past. I visited Matrix about 1 month ago for a massage to use a gift card I had been given. . At that time I had a good massage, I felt relaxed afterward and the massage therapist was good. I returned today and decided to try a different massage therapist. I am SO glad I did. Amie provided me with true therapeutic body work. She is extremely knowledgeable, caring and does true therapeutic massage work. If you really know and understand massage, you will appreciate her approach. If you are looking for a massage you can get on a cruise line, this is not it. I will definitely return in the future to see Amie again! My back feels fantastic today and I can really tell the difference in my posture, my neck and my overall energy level. She gave the best massage that I have had in years! Thank you Amie for the awesome massage work.

This is one of the more expensive places in town, but my goodness are they worth it. I've worked with three different therapists, and each one has been exceptionally good in their own way. You can get a reasonably good massage for about $50 cheaper a few other places around town, but you're rolling the dice. Here you can be pretty much guaranteed a memorable experience.

My husband and I have been there twice for couples massages. We always receive great massage work and they are very respectful. However, this last time 2 weeks ago, we booked the couples massage and they ended up charging my husband $15 more than the advertised price of $95 per person! That was very disappointing.

I have loved my two visits to Matrix. Donna May is awesome! I've had both a swedish massage and a deep tissue massage. Both experiences exceeded my expectations. Thank you, Donna May, for helping me feel relaxed and reenergized!

I signed up for a deep tissue massage with Todd Hudson. He was very professional and always asked how the pressure was so that it was effective but didn’t cause pain. He gave attention to the areas of my body that I did have cramps or pain in. Overall one of the best massages I’ve gotten.

Matrix is simply the best in Utah not only for Massages. It is more then that. The experience you will receive is one of a kind! I have had injuries and am probably the hardest customer to work on. Just ask... I have had a few therapists there and they were all good. Limhi is the best for the hard structural work that I need. He is one of the best I have ever had! He really cares and is great at getting the work that I need done when I come in. I recommend the Expertise Massage. The sauna and steam rooms just make the experience that much better. I will refer Matrix to everyone I know who needs work or a relaxing day at the spa. Thanks to all the staff for all their work! See you soon..Respectfully, Chris Stocki

Took my husband as a surprise for his birthday. Julieta started evaluating what he needed as soon as she touched him & adjusted what she did from the get go. She got all of his "trouble spots" & got things to move that even the chiropractors have had trouble with. We will definitely be back!

My husband and I did a 100 mile bike ride, and were in desperate need of a massage. They got me in the next morning, and it was wonderful!! It was the first time that my husband had had a deep tissue massage, and he loved it. It really helped work out the pain. The person that worked on me, was great. He made sure that the pressure was exactly how I liked it. (I'm a little sensitive) I will definitely be going back!!

My husband bought me a gift card for a Deep Tissue Massage for my birthday here at Matrix Spa. It was really nice! They have their own parking lot which is nice in this part of town. The waiting room is very pleasant with complimentary "chlorophyll water". The massage it self was very nice in a tranquil room. I would definitely go back.

I have been here twice now, both for sports massages after pulling muscles in MTB wrecks. They have a lot of therapists so you can usually get in within a day which is awesome when you are looking to deal with an accute injury. I had a different therapist each time. Both seem knowledgeable and gave recommendations for working the muscles to keep them loose as they healed. Both rooms were nice and relaxing. One of these days I would really like to try a relaxing massage but I seem to only ever go when I'm in pain and have very specific goals.

My first time getting a full-body deep-tissue massage. Father's day gift. If you're looking for an intelligent, responsive and experienced therapist, look no further than Limhi... strong yet sensitive... and a good conversationalist to boot... what a great guy! I left Matrix feeling 10 years younger. Am definitely considering another visit in a few weeks.

Limhi Gomez, by far the most efficient, intentional massage I’ve had. I’ve visited many massage therapists over the years but he dug into each specific problem spot better than any. I will certainly be going back, I have many back, neck and shoulder issues and he addressed every one.

And their early birds are a great time to go if you need to just relax in the middle of the day.

My wife and I booked the Diamond Package at Matrix, from previous reviews I thought it was going to be around a 90 minute massage, and then quick secession of the other services. This was not the case at all. Both Massage Therapists took their time with each service and my wife and I were thoroughly impressed with care we were given. We will definitely be returning to Matrix!

Very inviting and unique atmosphere. Most importantly my therapist Paul actually listened to my condition and where I would like the focus on my session. He was very thorough and checked in on pressure and such, but not too much that is was not relaxing. Thank you for two wonderful sessions! I recommend this to anyone looking for getting exactly what you requested. Thank you Matrixx!

Thank you Zach. :)The facility is also very nice and conducive to relaxing.

They were very helpful in explaining the process and what I would be seeing. They gave me a pamphlet of what the different colors mean, so I understood the detox more. Will definitely be back for this and other treatments! Can't wait!

Limhi the massage therapist who does the Thai Massage was incredible. I have never done a Thai massage before, but when I read that it helps by stretching of the body I thought I would give it a try. It was the most intense experience I have ever had. It’s not your typical relaxing massage, the relaxing part comes after Limhi is done. I did not know my body was capable of stretching as I it did. After it was over I felt spent, but my body felt incredible.

I recommend this business frequently, and caution that as with any service, you may take a couple appointments to find a massage therapist that fits your needs/style but both me and my husband have found someone we look forward to booking with! Great pricing and never an issue with availability. Clean, timely and friendly staff.
