Need an excuse to book a sports massage session? A study by The Buck Institute shows it reduces inflammation and promotes muscle growth even in older participants.
Massage brings relief and comfort to those suffering from general muscle soreness. It also reduces DOMS as part of an intensive training regime.
Many of us suffer from stiffness due to spending too much time at our desks or in our cars. Physiotherapy based sports massage can open up the muscle fibres that are hard to stretch. The sheath or fascia surrounding the muscle is also manipulated reducing pressure and tension.
There are cardiovascular benefits to sports massage too. By increasing blood flow to the tissues and dilating your micro-circulation, sports massage helps flush away toxins and waste products like lactic acid and allows fresh oxygen and nutrients to get in there and work their magic. Regular sessions will increase joint mobility, flexibility, and reduce the risk of injury during exercise.
A session a week takes between 45 minutes and an hour, and it’ll put a new spring in your step that lasts for a few days afterwards.
