Everyone knows sports massage is good for the condition of their muscles, but there are a few added benefits that might not be as obvious. But regular sports massage has a host of other benefits that those in the know appreciate…
Massage improves the condition of soft tissues in the body, and can help tight muscles to relax. Because the muscles’ resting length is improved, joints that are mildly stiff may feel freer to move around. The movement of our joints is vital in maintaining the synovial fluid that keeps them moving smoothly, and their overall health.
Soft tissue massage techniques like effulge can improve the venous and lymphatic return of fluid from our arms and legs into the body. Tight or damaged muscle tissue can be better repaired by an increase in blood supply from massage. An added benefit here is that massage can also help to break down scar tissue and fibrosis from older soft tissue injuries too!
Improved Mental Health
Taking time out of your week to do something for your health is important – so an hour to yourself to have a sports massage is a great way to practice some self-care. Whether you want to lay in silence and enjoy your massage with some background music, or you’re a chatty patient who likes to put the world to rights – there’s not many people who don’t feel better after a sports massage.
If you’ve never had a sports massage before, there’s never been a better time!
