You don’t have to be an athlete to benefit from a professional sports massage! Both athletes and non-athletes can gain physiological and psychological benefits from sports massage therapy.
Sports can place immense stress on the body, stressing the muscles and their bony attachments, making tissues inelastic and tense. We see far too many athletes who present with injuries, which could have been prevented with a good stretching routine and an ounce of preventative care.
Sports massages help improve your performance by:
Increasing muscle flexibility
Releasing muscle tension
Breaking down scar tissue lingering from previous injuries
Flushing out stale fluids and encouraging improved blood flow to feed and repair muscle tissue.
However, we can also help relieve the stresses and strains of work or home life. Treating yourself or your partner to a regular sports massage can help release endorphins, decrease anxiety, improve mood and enhance state of mind.
