Sports massage plays a pivotal role in the lives of athletes, both for those who are injured and those who are not. Its benefits are multifaceted, addressing physical, physiological, and psychological aspects. It aids in maintaining the body in superior condition, preventing injuries and loss of mobility, facilitating the recovery and restoration of injured muscle tissues, enhancing performance, and prolonging the overall duration of your sporting career.
Whether you’re looking to prepare for an upcoming event or recover post-activity, booking in advance is highly recommended. The advantages of sports massage apply to both scenarios.
Here are some of the physical effects of sports massage:
- Pumping: The stroking movements in massage promote the movement of fluids through blood vessels and lymph vessels. This action helps by increasing the pressure in front of the stroke, creating a vacuum behind it. This is especially beneficial for tight or damaged muscle tissue, as it allows for better circulation, providing vital nutrients and energy for repair.
- Increased Tissue Permeability: Deep massage opens the pores in tissue membranes, facilitating the passage of fluids and nutrients. This helps eliminate waste products like lactic acid and encourages the muscles to absorb oxygen and nutrients, speeding up recovery.
- Stretching: Massage can stretch muscle tissues in ways that regular methods cannot. It stretches muscle fibres lengthwise and sideways, and it can also stretch the sheath or fascia that surrounds the muscle, relieving tension and pressure build-up.
- Scar Tissue Breakdown: Scar tissue resulting from previous injuries or trauma can affect muscles, tendons, and ligaments, making them prone to inflexibility and pain. Massage helps break down scar tissue, promoting flexibility and reducing the risk of injury.
- Improvement in Tissue Elasticity: Intensive training can make tissues rigid and inelastic, hindering improvements. Massage helps counteract this by stretching the tissues, restoring elasticity.
- Enhancement of Micro-Circulation: While exercise increases blood flow to tissues, massage goes a step further by dilating blood vessels and stretching them, making it easier for nutrients to pass through.”
