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.
Any massage undertaken in the 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 are working optimally on the big day.
