Benefits of Sports Massage

Updated: Sep 18, 2022

Here are four reasons you should try a sports massage:

To reduce pain

Pain can affect any part of the body. A bad back is one of the most common complaints.

Tight and damaged muscles are painful and really benefit from being released. Those tense muscles also hold on to waste products such as lactic acid, so a deep tissue massage will help get the fluids and nutrients flowing and will help the body to release its own natural endorphins.

To relieve tension and stiffness

Deep massage combats tension and stiffness by warming and stretching the tissues and increasing blood flow to the muscles. This helps the muscles to move more easily and flexibly.

To prevent 'delayed onset muscle soreness' (DOMS)

Sometimes called “muscle fever”, DOMS is the painful, stiff feeling that usually comes on after exercise that was particularly strenuous or unfamiliar to your body. It appears hours - or even days - later. A sports massage will help to ward off DOMS before the tension and discomfort kicks in.

It can make you feel good

Athleticism isn't all about physical strength. Most of us will know how great it feels to have even a simple, relaxing back massage. An intensive, targeted sports massage has many positive effects on your psychological wellbeing, which helps improve performance and recovery. The specialist techniques will encourage the body to release its own mood-enhancing chemicals, dopamine and serotonin. This helps to increase calmness and focus - and to reduce anxiety.
