Sports massage helps to enhance training performance, speed up recovery time and restore balance to the muscular-skeletal system.

Sport puts a lot of stress on the body and can make tissues hard and inelastic. This is why at times hard training doesn’t bring any results or improvement.

Doing sport puts muscles, tendons, ligaments and joints under pressure. Regular sport massage helps to flush out tension in the muscles and release the stress applied to the tendons and ligaments specifically with high impact training such as running, dancing, boxing etc.

PERFORMANCE

A sports massage is a deep tissue massage that stretches and lengthens muscles fibers, which cannot be stretched in any other way.

It breaks down adhesion and scar tissues that come from old injuries and traumas, and it reduces muscles range of movement.

By releasing the build up tensions in muscles and fascia which surround the muscles, sport massage increases soft tissues and joints flexibility and muscles tone.

Sports massage also helps prevent injuries that may come for overuse or lack of stretching. It’s why sports massage can help to improve training performance and prevent injuries.

RECOVERY

By stimulating the blood flood in the body sport massage assists the healing process of damage tissues.

Massage action increases tissues permeability, helps the blood, oxygen and nutrients to reach the damaged areas and help to speed up the healing process of soft tissues. It enables nutrients to pass through tissues more easily, though it can provide some discomfort.

PRE-EVENT MASSAGE

Sports massages are used before an event to stimulate muscles. They are used as a part of the warm up of athletes before a competition. It’s a simulation technique, the massage style is then more dynamic and faster. Sports massages wake up muscles so they are stimulated and ready to work.

POST-TRAINING MASSAGE

After a training session or a competition sport massage helps to stretch, get rid of waste products, specifically the lactic acid, speed up the recovery time and reduce soreness.

SPORTS MASSAGE is for EVERYONE

Sports massage is not only for sporty people but for everybody who feel tensions.

Office workers can benefit as much as professional athletes. Sitting down all day increases pressure on the neck and shoulders, and a sports massage can also help to release those tensions.
