Sports Massage Therapy
I am based in South Woodofrd E18 and Marylebone W1H
Massage was first used in the first Olympics Games by the Greeks and the Romans. The Greeks has a saying “Massage can never be fully appreciated by the common man” The common man to whom they referred to was not judged by wealth or social class but a man who lacked athletic grace.
Regular sports massage therapy can help avoid overuse injuries and traumas. Massage should play a very important part in any athletes or recreational sports persons training program. Through massage we can help remove the build-up of general aches and pains that most sports persons seem to accept.
A muscle spasm is nothing more than a contraction that has failed to release. Muscles normally spasm to protect other damaged tissue, the more damage the more spasm and the more joint restriction.
Breaking down scar tissue is important as scar tissue can build up in soft tissue such as muscles, tendons, and ligaments and may be present as a result of past injuries and repeated micro-trauma. This build up could conceivably lead to tension and inflexibility. Deep tissue massage will help return normal tissue tension by breaking down scar tissue and adhesions.
Sports massage induces a relaxation and works perfectly alongside the biomechanics screening and re-aligning process. The two can work hand in hand to speed up the process towards becoming pain free, with increased power speed and the ability to move more freely.
