Sport massage therapy helps alleviate stress and tension, which builds up in the body’s soft tissues during physical activity. It helps to drain away fatigue, relieve swelling, reduce muscle tension, promote flexibility, prevent injuries and in the case of sports people, prepare for peak performance. Sport massage can help prevent those niggling injuries that so often get in the way of performance and achievement, whether a person is an athlete, a weekend jogger or just a physically active person.
Benefits of Sport Massage
Sport massage, when applied skillfully, is the most effective therapy for releasing muscle tension and restoring balance to the musculoskeletal system. When received regularly, this may help athletes 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, tendons, as well as the muscles themselves. Sport Massage can be used to treat the stress, tension and fatigue that occurs through occupational, recreational or sporting activities.
It can also be beneficial to:
- Help relieve that stress and tension which can hinder optimal performance.
- Reduce the likelihood of injury during exercise.
- Speed up the recovery process and aid rehabilitation after injury.
- Ensure full range of movement and increase muscle flexibility.
- Improve postural and general body awareness.
For the more serious athletes, sport massage can help at the different stages of participation. For example:
- Pre competition
- Inter competition
- Post competition
- Injury Recovery
- Injury prevention
Who Can Benefit
It is not necessary to be a sportsperson to reap the benefits of sport massage. Muscular tension, stress and fatigue can affect all of us, whether we are competitive or recreational athletes, DIY fanatics, gardeners, busy housewives, or stressed executives. Active or sedentary – you should find the treatment relaxing and therapeutic.
Many people appreciate the deep treatment offered by a skilled sport massage therapist as they can really feel those knots being ‘ironed out’. You will become aware of how your body reacts and tenses up under stress and by taking early action to reduce their stress levels and relax.
