Massage has been used as a treatment for hundreds of years and is scientifically proven to be effective in aiding in injury recovery and pain relief.
But the benefits of sports massage and manipulation are far-reaching, and can be used to improve your circulation, posture and flexibility, and well as relieving back, shoulder and neck pain.
There are also many passive benefits to massage which includes:
- Increased suppleness and flexibility of muscles and joints
- Prevention of muscle and tendon injuries
- Efficient clearing of harmful metabolic by-products
- Reduction of scar tissue
- Improved tissue elasticity
- Improvements in your tissue’s micro-circulation
But as well as the many physical benefits, massage offers a host of psychological benefits as well. For example it can reduce your approach anxiety. Approach anxiety, which is the anxiety you feel about an upcoming match or event, is a common part of sports participation. You may also feel enhanced feelings of invigoration and rejuvenation and an increased awareness of your mind-body connection.
