The Benefits of Sports Massage




Are you a mountain biker, triathlete, trail runner or CrossFitter? Are you wondering what a sports massage can do for your body?


Well, it can help you by breaking up scar tissue and reducing adhesions in your muscles which can affect your flexibility and ability to compete. When your muscles are stressed, the fibres in the muscle fascia protect them from suffering micro tears. During strenuous exercise muscle fascia forms adhesions which can restrict your movement and cause pain. When a deep tissue massage is applied to the affected area by a massage therapist, the adhesions are broken up and significantly reduced. This relieves pain, increases range of motion and promotes circulation to the area which brings much needed nutrients to the muscle and accelerates the healing process.


Regular sports massages can help keep you at the top of your game and happy and relaxed.
