So i am qualified as a Level 3 and 4 Sports Massage Therapist meaning i can see you for maintanance massages and also for possible injuries, the level 4 means i have a greater depth of understanding of anatomy and can assess and treat a wide variety of muscular dysfunctions and injuries.
As early as 3000BC, the Chinese have practiced massage to cure ailments and improve general health. In fact, the Greeks, Romans, Egyptians and all major civilizations, including today’s western modern medicine, have recognised the benefits of massage.
Sports Massage is a specific type of massage developed over thousands of years. It is a blend of Swedish Massage, Deep Tissue Massage, Neuromuscular and Trigger Point techniques; which are designed to improve and maintain soft tissues of the body, prevent injury and aid recovery of the body’s muscular systems.
Whether you’re a professional athlete or just like to keep fit. If you like to push yourself to your physical limits through movements such as running, cycling, hiking etc or simply exert yourself through strenuous daily activities for example, at work, mothers with small children, gardening etc – Sports Massage can help you!
Too many times people resort to taking prescribed tablets to mask out the pain caused by a muscular imbalance, but this is not getting to the root of the problem.
Sports Massage, applied skilfully, is arguably the most effective therapy for releasing muscular tension and restoring balance to the musculoskeletal system. Received regularly this may help prevent injuries caused by overuse.
BENEFITS OF SPORTS MASSAGE
- Relieve Muscular Tension
- Helping your muscles to relax which increases joint mobility
- Relieve Stresses on Joints, Ligaments & Tendons
- Break Down Scar Tissue
- Prevent Injury
- Improve Flexibility of muscles, ligaments and tendons
- Increase both blood and lymphatic circulation
- There is also a huge argument and a lot of science backing up the psychological benefits of massage for reducing fatigue, and also stress and anxiety.
“According to the evidence “Strength training reduced sports injuries to less than 1/3 and overuse injuries could be almost halved” (Lauersen et al, 2013).”
