The following benefits can be experienced following sports/deep tissue massage:
Perceived reduction in muscle tension, muscular pain and discomfort
Increased range of motion, potentially leading to enhanced performance
Decreased muscle stiffness and soreness after exercise or physical activity
Reduced recovery time post injury
Increased levels of relaxation and reduction in physical and psychological stress levels
Potentially aid sleep quantity and quality.
The best way to regard sports massage therapy is as a catalyst to allow for increased benefit from training and other activities. If sports massage can significantly desensitise tissue, temporarily boost blood flow and reduce symptoms, the subsequent training or rehabilitation program will be more effective due to the removal of discomfort or pain. Don’t look at sports massage as being beneficial in isolation, it is part of a holistic approach including training, recovery, rest and nutrition.
