Sports Massage

Pain following exercise

Sports massage, applied skilfully, is an effective therapy for releasing muscle tension and restoring balance to the musculoskeletal system. This therapeutic measure may help athletes prevent injuries, which might otherwise be caused by overuse. The skilled sports massage therapist can detect variations in the soft tissues and by using the correct techniques, help the sports person maintain a much healthier physical state. Therefore, one of the greatest benefits of sports massage is in the prevention of injury.

According to the American Massage Therapy Association, sports massage has the following beneficial effects:

Improves overall performance and reduces recovery time. Reduces muscle tension. Helps athletes monitor muscle tone. Promote relaxation. Increase range of motion. Decrease muscle stiffness and soreness after exercise. Helps prevent injuries.
