If you're considering a pre-event massage or post-event recovery massage your timing is important for maximum benefit.

Pre-Event Sports Massage

Pre-event massages that require deep tissue techniques should occur no later than 48 to 72 hours before the planned exercise event.

Any massage undertaken in the preceding 48 hours, should be restricted to light relaxation only. If you have a sporting event coming up soon, please discuss your timeframes with your sports massage therapist to ensure that your muscles are working optimally on the big day.
