How long does a sports massage last?

Sports massages are one of the best gifts you can give yourself. They help your muscles stay relaxed, invigorate your body, and relieve tension from overused muscle groups.

But most importantly, they’re an excellent way to keep your body in top shape for everyday activities.

How long should a sports massage take?

The length of time that you will reap the benefits of a sports massage can vary depending on the type and intensity of massage you receive. A general rule of thumb is that a single session should last at least 45 minutes to 1 hour. 

During this time, your massage therapist will work on specific areas that need attention, such as sore muscles or tight joints. Depending on the extent of these issues, it may take longer or shorter than one hour to address them all properly.

How often should you get one?

Sports massages can also be beneficial for athletes looking to improve their performance during training and competition. By providing relief from tight muscles and increasing blood flow to certain areas, sports massages can help improve athletic performance when done regularly over a period of time. Typically, training athletes will receive multiple sessions per week in order to maintain peak physical condition.


Overall, there is no definitive answer as to how long a sports massage should last; however, as a general guideline, most sessions should last around 45 minutes to 1 hour in order to provide maximum benefit for your body’s needs.

If you’re an athlete looking for improved performance through regular sports massage therapy then multiple sessions per week may be necessary in order to maintain peak physical condition.
