Maintain the entire body in better physical condition. Restoring balance to the musculoskeletal system
By improving flexibility and mobility in the soft tissues ensures a consistent training schedule is maintained. Further increasing the quality of training.
Through the reduction of tension in the body helps to combat stress and sleeping difficulties which can ultimately lead to overuse, further injuries or illness
Helps to reduces swelling and inflammation, helps to rehabilitate the soft tissues and breaks down scar tissue
Sports massage is geared toward healing of sports related injuries or pains. It is definitely not intended to put you to sleep. It’s usually quite rigorous and is focused on parts of the body and muscles that are stressed and over extended or are aggravated from repetitive use or poor posture.
It is this overuse that may often create problems and imbalances in the soft tissues. If these are ignored and allowed to become chronic, they will not only hinder the athlete’s rate of improvement, but also in many cases their performance may as well suffer and ultimately the athlete may be susceptible to developing more conditions that are more serious than the previous.
