What is a Pre-Event Massage?

Pre-event massage occurs before a workout, competition or sporting performance. Pre-event massage aims to increase blood circulation flexibility and mentally prepare people for activity and enhance performance. Pre-event massage is short and specific massage treatment.

Before an event, 3-5 days before, a deep tissue massage can be incredibly beneficial. You can release knots, relax tired muscles, improve your range of motion and get a much-needed break from your training schedule.

If you’re considering a pre-event massage or post-event recovery massage, your timing is essential for maximum benefit.

When is the Best Time for a 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.

Is it Bad to Get a Massage the Day Before a Game or Event?

Any massage undertaken within 48-hours prior should be 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 work optimally on the big day.
