A brief history of Sports Massage origins

In ancient Greece athletes used massage prior to and after competing while Romans recognised the benefits for injured gladiators. Coming into the 1950’s and 60’s the Russians and East germans developed sports massage techniques which are now mainstream.

It continues to develop as professional athletes and their trainers push the boundries of human performance. Now the average club golfer and sunday morning footballer can improve their performances by using a sports massage therapist.

Sports massage can be used to warm up the body prior to an activity and or sport increasing the blood flow to the muscles in a pre event massage to reduce risk of injury.

A post event massage would be used as close after your sport or activity to rid the muscles of a build up of toxins including lactic acid, thus reducing the risk of delayed onset muscle soreness.

Psychological benefits can be huge, such as an increase in self esteem and self perception as an athlete.

For maximum benefit, after your treatment try to rest as this allows your body’s own healing process to work. Drink plenty of water to keep hydrated and help eliminate toxins from the muscles.
