Sports & Therapeutic Massage
Massage is an excellent way to speed up recovery during intense training and follow an injury. It has a number of benefits including physical, physiological and psychological:
- Reduce Anxiety – massage induces relaxation and eases soreness which in turn reduces anxiety
- Invigoration/Increased Energy – massage can leave you feeling invigorated and with more energy. This is particularly useful before an event.
- Pain reduction – Massage helps reduce tension and releases endorphin, having a therapeutic effect on pain perception. It also assists in prevention of soft tissue injuries and reduces recovery time should any injury occur.
- Relaxation – Muscles relax through the heat generated, improving circulation and muscle quality.
