Sports Massage

How does Sports Massage help with training and injury?

Whether you are an amateur runner training twice per week or a professional athlete competing at the Olympics, your body functions in the same way and above all it injures in the same way. Sports injuries occur when the demand of training exceeds the functional reservoir of your bodily tissues, this means that you ask too much without giving back enough to your body in terms of stretching and flexibility care.

Massage Therapy is a way to keep your body in tip top shape and ticketyboo!

How it helps:

  • It helps maintain a good level of nourishment of tissues by increasing the blood supply. This promotes tissue health.
  • It speeds up the function of your lymphatic system, helping your metabolism to get rid of its waste products.
  • It releases endorphins which have a primary effect on pain signals and are secreted by the central nervous system producing a feeling of well-being and happiness.
  • It helps you relax and reduce muscle tension accumulated with bad posture at work or poor self awareness.
The effects of massage mentioned above are the reason why many sporty people enjoy getting massage treatments on a regular basis.
