Sports Massage is not just a luxury for athletes or those who have adopted a strenuous fitness routine – they can be extremely beneficial for your average person, especially if you find that you suffer from regular aches and pains in your joints or you have an area of your body causing concern that you feel could benefit from a Sports Massage, it can be great to visit your massage therapist regularly to ensure that you are looking after your body in order for it to look after you.

What Is Sports Massage?

Sports Massage is a form of Sports Therapy, which entails a higher level of training and a wider set of skills and supporting knowledge. Sports Massage is a form of massage that involves the manipulation of soft tissue to help those who uptake regular physical activity. Overall it is designed to put right any problems and aid the recovery process to provide you with the maximum level of comfort and to enhance your future performance, preventing any further injury.

When Would I Need Sports Massage?

As we previously mentioned, Sports Massage is not just applicable to dedicated athletes – it can be extremely beneficial to anyone who enjoys regular physical activity or has been suffering any discomfort within a particular part of the body. Every now and then you may find that your body will feel tired and sore – this is completely normal when you live an active lifestyle therefore if you find yourself experiencing regular discomfort in an area of your body causing concern, aches and pains, living a stressful lifestyle or working in a stressful job, then perhaps you could benefit from enjoying regular Sports Massages.

Four Benefits Of Sports Massage:

Release Tension

One of the main areas of concern that makes you think you may need a massage is the amount of tension you could be feeling in your body. Whether that be muscle tension, pressure on your joints and bones or feeling lethargic. Sports Massage can be used to relax any tension to improve your general mobility and reduce your risk of a more severe injury.

Reduce Pain

If you find that you are experiencing regular pain and discomfort, a build up of muscle knots or you have recently suffered from an injury that has caused a problem for you within your day to day routine then regular Sports Massages will work on the area of concern and can help to reduce or relax your pain levels over time.

Stronger Flow Of Blood And Nutrients

If you train regularly then you may find your muscles can sometimes feel solid and heavy, which can occur from overtrained muscles being deprived of blood and nutrients. Regular Sports Massages can encourage better circulation in order to aid healing and repair to avoid damaged muscle or tissue.

Enhance Mobility

Regular training can sometimes take its toll on your body and therefore when you begin to get tight, stiff muscles they get harder to stretch and ultimately your general mobility and flexibility suffers in turn. The ‘pumping’ of soft tissue within a Sports Massage can enhance your muscular mobility and release any tension held.
