Want to be at your best? You don’t have to be an athlete to reap the benefits of a sports massage. A sports massage relies on deep manipulative techniques to help relieve any imbalances you may have. It can be beneficial to anyone looking to promote muscular health. That can be due to a sporting event or muscular tension caused by stress.
Firstly, some questions for you…
Do you suffer with muscular tension?
Do you suffer with bad posture?
Are you an active person?
Do you have a high training regime?
Do you suffer with insomnia?
Are you irritable?
Do you suffer with stress and anxiety?
Are you sat at an office desk all day?
Do you suffer with headaches?
If your answer is ‘yes’ to any of those, a sports massage can help you. It can help to correct any imbalances in the body. You are probably ware that stress is integral our survival. Constantly being in the state of “fight or flight” can lead to a variety of symptoms that may be detrimental to your health.
When people think of a sports massage, they often assume it relates entirely to pre or post event treatment for athletes. Whilst this is where the name originates from and the reason many people undertake one, a sports massage can be of incredible benefit for many people who aren’t always physically active.
A sports massage not only treats the body after athletic activity; there are many other reasons a sports massage may be beneficial. These include activity that happens during work, repetitive movements, and many other movements in your normal day to day life. As a sports masseur I not only trained for anatomy and physiology of sports massage. A large part of my training included the physiological side of sports massage. After the first 10 minutes of massage therapy the body’s happy hormones are activated leaving you feeling less stressed and more relaxed. Which goes along way towards getting you out of that fight or flight response.
Massage is also very beneficial when combined with other treatments such exercise and diet. If you feel like you are in that fight or flight response hit the link below for booking. If you have any questions please feel free to email [email protected]
