Sports Massage for Rock Climbers


It’s the day after your big climbing trip and your muscles are not very happy about it. A great way to relieve your aches and pains is to have a session with your local sport massage therapist.

Sports massage is a special form of massage and can be used before and after you go climbing. This is an excellent way to help in fatigue, relieve swelling, reduce muscle tension and to prevent injuries.

It also helps to promote flexibility, which is great for rock climbers.

This form of massage is esse

ntially a specialty branch of Swedish massage. The massage employs the cross-fiber strokes that help to break up and stretch out contracted and restricted tissue. This restriction and contract contributes to a lot of pain and restriction of motion.

If sports massage is received prior to climbing, the massage helps to protect against injuries and will also boost performance. It aids in the recovery of normal muscle tone and aids in the removal of lactic acid. This lactic acid is what typically leads to muscle soreness.

Another benefit of massage is that it enables athletes to move through plateaus with greater ease. Massage has been shown to help climbers with tight and contracted forearm muscles.

Massage in the forearms has been shown to help improve strength, grip and achieve higher levels of climbing ability. Both the flexor and extensors will benefit from massage. Other muscles that benefit from massage for rock climbers are the hands and wrists and quadriceps.

Many climbers have found that massage has helped them go to the next level in their climbing because they no longer suffer from muscles that become too tight to climb and they have been able to improve their style and grip.

Simply put it allows climbers to climb harder, faster and improve their range of motion.
