Benefits of sports massage therapy

The primary reason for sports massage therapy is usually to support the reduction of tension and stress which accumulate in the body's soft tissue during the course of training. Whenever minor injuries occur, as a result of over exertion and excessive use, massage can rapidly and efficiently break them down. 

Most importantly it will also help reduce those little ailments that can get in the way of overall performance, whether you are an athlete, keep fit fanatic or weekly jogger. 

 

What does a treatment involve

Sports massage therapy techniques incorporate warming up, relaxing and preparing the soft tissue for deeper work. Along side deep tissue work, other techniques can be applied, such as assisted stretching, active release, METs (Muscle energy techniques, which all aid in improving flexibility and reducing muscle tension.

Percussive Therapy

Percussive massage accelerates the growth and repair of soft tissue by providing concentrated, rapid, short duration pulses deep into the tissues of the body. This heavily increases blood flow to the problematic area relieving pain and increasing range of motion and function. Percussive therapy also provides a gentle stretch to the muscles and connective tissue, improving responsiveness and performance. 

 

Physical benefits of sports massage therapy

Greater overall flexibility

By reducing tension and removing scar tissue, we enable the muscle to able to perform through a greater range of movement. 

Improves micro blood flow

Massage boosts the circulation of blood to the targeted area and causes vasodilation which allows fresh oxygen and nutrients into the affected area. 

Increases tissue permeability

Microscopic holes in the tissue membrane enlarge, allowing essential fluids and nutrients to pass through. This also allows waste material such as lactic acid to be taken out easily, which creates a situation where oxygenated blood and nutrients can swiftly flood the targeted muscles enabling as rapid recovery.
