What is Massage/Sports Massage?


Massage is a very common treatment option for a number of conditions and situations. Massage involves the practitioner using his or her hands to manipulate the bodies soft tissues, changing muscular tone or tightness. Massage has a paucity of high quality research behind it but has several significant practical benefits supported by thousands of athletes, sportsmen and women who regularly use massage as part of their regime. 


Massage or sports massage is a general term which may refer to several techniques or styles, the classic type of massage most are familiar with is referred to as Swedish massage and includes stroking, kneading and shaking. These techniques are often used as part of a general restorative or preparatory massage. Other forms of massage such as friction, trigger point release or myofascial release are often used much more specifically for particular conditions.



How Does Massage/Sports Massage Work?


The proposed benefits of massage includes improved lactate clearance, reduced delayed onset muscle soreness, reduced muscle fatigue, psychological benefits, improved injury prevention rates and as a treatment for specific conditions. Many sportsmen and women integrate sports massage into their training regime as key restorative measure.
