Sports massage focuses on muscle systems used in athletic activities, combining Swedish style massage with trigger points and neuromuscular techniques. It reduces soreness and helps enhance power, endurance, and flexibility.
A brief history of Sports Massage origins
The ancient Greek athletes used sports massage before and after competing. The Romans recognised the benefits of sports massage for injured gladiators. Now, the mainstream massage techniques come from the Russians and East Germans from the 1950s and 60s.
It continues to develop as professional athletes and their trainers push the boundaries of human performance. Now the average club golfer and Sunday morning footballer can improve their performances by using a sports massage therapist.
Blood flow to the muscles is increased by taking a sports massage before your activity. This helps reduce the risk of injury.
A post-event massage would be used as close after your sport or activity. It helps to rid the muscles of a build-up of toxins including lactic acid, and reduces the risk of delayed onset muscle soreness.
As an athlete, the psychological benefits are an increase in self-esteem and self-perception.
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.
