Massage can be offered at home or at a private clinic and can treat the majority of minor and moderate musculoskeletal problems. Those undertaking personal training sessions may also benefit as there is evidence to suggest they help to prevent injuries which might otherwise be caused by overuse when training.
When performed expertly, sports massage is a very useful therapy to reduce muscle tension and restore equilibrium to the muscular-skeletal system.
It is performed using many different techniques and provides the body with numerous benefits. Muscle fibres are stretched, lesions and adhesions are broken down and muscle tension is reduced, all of which contribute to muscles staying soft and supple. This accelerates recovery time from injury or training and allows the body to perform with less restriction, providing improved muscle efficiency and performance.
