Some of the great benefits of Sports Massage Therapy!

Massage Therapy is the manual manipulation of muscles and soft tissue by applying pressure to the body with the intention of positively affecting the health and well being of the client or patient.

Benefits of Massage Therapy Include:

  • Massage is very effective in the relief of pain and discomfort, whether due to a particular health disorder or to chronic stress.
  • Massage increases blood circulation and lymphatic circulation, which helps remove waste and toxins from muscles.
  • Massage causes a decrease in blood pressure and heart rate due to reflex effects through the sympathetic nervous system. Reflex effects include muscle relaxation, relief of spasms and cramps and increased range of motion.
  • A decrease in anxiety, tension and fatigue, along with the enhancement of a general sense of well-being is also a benefit of receiving a massage.

Can Massage Improve Sports Performance?

Professional and amateur athletes alike find massage stretches tight muscles and improves motion like nothing else. Restoring full motion and relieving tightness helps athletes stay limber and balanced for optimal sports performance. Also, new and recurring injuries are prevented when muscles stay flexible and motion is balanced.

All of the above have potential benefits for a personal trainer to up skill in sports massage. It would give you the opportunity to get to better know your clients from a personal and physical perspective, as well as potential to improve their movement.
