If you enjoy an active lifestyle, play any type of sport, or just like to participate in regular exercise, then a sports massage can play a vital part of your fitness and training goals.
A sports massage usually involves working a little deeper into the soft tissues of the body, which include the muscles, tendons and ligaments.
This deeper massage pressure, if required, is normally well tolerated as long as your soft tissues are strong and healthy.
Your general tissue quality depends on a number of factors including, a balanced training programme, total training load and time allowed for proper recovery, sound dietry and hydration practices and a balanced psychological state.
The best part is you don't have to wait until you are injured to reap the benefits of a good sports massage.
If you are an athlete then a sports massage can be beneficial for you as it contributes in the following ways:
Maintains your body in better condition
Helps with injury prevention and loss of mobility
Restores mobility to injured muscle tissue
Can extend the overall length of your athletic career
Boosts your performance
If you are looking for help to recover from an injury, or you are keen to improve your performance by balancing your musculo-skeletal system, a sports massage could be a good choice for you.
