About Sports Massage
Sports Massage is an effective treatment for releasing tension and reinstating balance to the musculoskeletal system. It is valuable to an athlete’s preparation and recovery, stopping injury and helping to achieve optimum performance. It also has benefits for each and every one, athlete or not, helping to relieve aches and pains, improve flexibility and reduce stress.
Sports Massage can help to reduce tiredness/fatigue, alleviate swelling, reduce muscle tension, promote flexibility, prevent injury and prepare the body for performance. Typically, it is used before or after an athletic or other sporting event, and many athletes use Sports Massage Therapy regularly as a necessary part of their training and recovery routine.
What Are the Benefits of Sports Massage Therapy?
Increase sporting performance
Reduce aches and pains
Decrease Muscle tension
Maintain the human body in a healthy condition
Prevent injuries and inflexibility
Reduce the recovery period following an injury
Increased flexibility: Massage stretches muscle tissue in a multidirectional manner, both longitudinally and laterally. It can also have a similar effect on the muscular sheath and surrounding fascia, allowing a beneficial release of stored tension and pressure.
Each and every time a muscle receives trauma or injury, scar tissue is formed which can affect the muscle itself as well as the tendons and ligaments. If not treated correctly at the time of injury, this scar tissue can form haphazardly, resulting in the potential for long-term inflexibility issues. Massage assists in realigning the scar tissue formation and reduces the likelihood of subsequent injury and/or pain.
Massage enhances the blood flow to the tissues of the target muscles in a similar manner to exercise. In addition to this, massage also causes blood vessels to dilate enabling oxygen and nutrients to pass through more readily.
Reduction of pain: A combination of tension and waste products within a muscle can often result in the sensation of pain. Massage lessons this painful feeling by its ability to reduce tension and remove waste products. It also encourages the release of endorphins.
Stimulates relaxation response: Massage creates an environment whereby heat generation, enhanced circulation and increased flexibility are all promoted. All of these factors play a role in stimulating mechanoreceptors in the body and creating relaxation.
Reduced anxiety levels: Through stimulating a relaxation response, massage has the additional benefit of lowering anxiety levels, creating a mood enlightening experience.
Invigorating bodily response: If the sports massage is completed utilising brisk movements prior to a sporting event then it can create an invigorating bodily response.
