Sports massage is very important in the prevention of injuries. Massage helps to remove waste products such as lactic acid and encourages the muscle to take up oxygen and nutrients, which help the muscles recover. Sports massage can help to stretch muscle and restore circulation.
Deep tissue massage breaks down scar tissue that may have formed with past injuries and heavy muscle use. Sports massage reduces the duration of injury by improving range of motion and flexibility resulting in improved power and performance. The overall objective is to help the athlete reach optimal performance and injury free performance. One hour of prevention is worth months of cure.
Massage Therapy is one of the best ways to manage stress. Manipulation of the soft tissue decreases tension, increases the removal of metabolic waste and promotes nutrient delivery to healing tissues. Massage can help improve a weak immune system that has been compromised by extended periods of stress.
