Post event massage also helps treat and prevent delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS). A post event massage helps aid recovery after exercise. Massage can help prevent post exercise soreness, restore range of movement and encourage blood flow to tight muscles.
About Post Event Treatment
Post event treatment involves the application of a range of massage techniques to assist recovery from activity. Post event massage can be performed from 30 minutes up to 48 hours after intense exercise. Post-event massage aims to increase the body’s rate of recovery by reducing inflammation in the muscles.
Post event massage also aims to increase vascular and lymphatic activity, aiding the body’s natural process of removing waste products after exercise, such as lactic acid. Lactic acid is produced in the muscles during exercise and contributes towards delayed onset muscle soreness, fatigue and stiffness.
