Benefits of Sports Massage
Sports Massage applied skillfully, is the most effective therapy for releasing muscle tension and restoring balance to the musculo-skeletal system. Received regularly this may help you prevent injuries, which might otherwise be caused by overuse. A constant build-up of tension in the muscles from regular activity may lead to stresses on joints, ligaments and tendons, as well as the muscles themselves. These muscle imbalances may develop and often go undiagnosed until they are serious enough to cause discomfort or impede your performance. The Sports Massage Therapist will be able to detect variations in the soft tissues and by using the correct techniques, release tight bands of muscle, break down scar tissue and increase flexibility of the muscles.
Sports Massage will:
– Help recuperation after injury
– Release of muscle tension and pain
– Improved posture and flexibility
– Assists recovery between training sessions
– Remove waste products in the muscles
– Improves posture allowing the body to function more effectively
– Increased sense of well being
Who Can Benefit from Sports Massage:
Anyone who engages in physical activity for the purpose of sport or fitness – irrespective of age, level of fitness or level of training – can benefit. Anyone with injuries or problems that are inhibiting performance will find that the stimulatory effects of sports massage encourage the healing process. Recreational and competitive athletes following a regular training programme will benefit during recovery, and through the early detection of any problems arising from training stress. Athletes engaged in sporting events or competitions can benefit before, during and after the event, depending on whether the need is for the release of muscle tension, relief from soreness or relaxation.
