Massage therapy uses a variety of techniques to manipulate your joints and soft tissue to improve your body’s overall health. Massage increases the body’s supply of oxygen and nutrients to your muscles, which help release waste from the muscle tissue. Massage also accelerates your body's own natural ability to heal itself.
Massage Therapy is the assessment and treatment of soft tissue and joint dysfunction and pain. Massage can help restore flexibility and range of motion as well as increase overall wellness and relaxation.
What are the aims of Sports Massage?
Sports massage treatments aim to stretch tight muscles, stimulate inactive muscles and improve soft tissue condition. It is a deeper massage that repairs muscle fibres and adhesions. It also reduces postural problems and tensions, relieves aches and pains and is a vital element in the recovery from a variety of soft tissue injuries. Sports massage enables you to move your body more freely and can improve posture. It can also relieve pain, tension and anxiety.
This form of massage therapy is popular with sports people as it may enhance performance. Sports massage promotes recovery and prevents overuse. This is achieved through increasing the blood and lymph circulation, ensuring the effective removal of waste products produced by the body due to physical activity and enhancing the supply of nutrients to the muscles. Sports massage releases tight muscles that could cause a reduction in movement which could lead to muscular imbalances and postural problems causing aches pain and even further injury. Sports massage may also prevent injury, promote healing, restore mobility and promote confidence.
Contrary to common belief you don't need to be an athlete or even sporty to appreciate the benefits of sports massage. Spending time at a desk or behind a driving wheel can cause muscular tension and over use, which can be freed effectively using sports massage.
