Sports massage will be beneficial to anyone who is physically active with regards to their job, sport or lifestyle. The effects of sports massage will cause physiological, psychological and physical changes to your body.
Massage can cause a parasympathetic reaction (relaxation) ie, reduction in muscle tension, increase in blood flow to the muscles and reduction of stress hormones or sympathetic response (opposite).
Massage can alter your mental state by either reducing your stress or stimulating your body to function well. Chemical changes can occur with the release of adrenaline or endorphins, altering your psychophysical state.
Massage can assist the flow of blood and lymph in your body, improve the mobility of the muscle fibres by stretching them and helping the separation of these fibres which may have become adhered to one another.
NB: The pressure applied to a sports massage will be adjusted to each individual.
