It is not okay just to look healthy, you have to feel and be healthy too. Massages help deal with a lot of the stress, pain and discomfort hidden beneath the surface. This guide will tell you what a massage actually entails, as well as its health benefits.
Everyone can benefit from sports and remedial massage if they are experiencing aches and pains caused by overuse or muscular dysfunction. At mhealth Sports and Remedial Massage Beaumaris, we make use of a combination of sports and remedial massage to treat these problems.
Remedial and deep tissue massage includes neuromuscular and muscle energy techniques during treatment to optimise results. Our personalised rehabilitation programs are designed to meet the specific needs of each patient and include advice on appropriate remedial exercises to address specific problems.
Sports massage utilises a set of specific massage techniques for the specialised treatment of aches and pains associated with muscle, ligament, and tendon issues. There are a number of key areas in sports and remedial massage that you can benefit from:
High-impact physical activities can cause muscle fatigue, exhaustion, and even injuries. Sports massage helps to break down overworked tissue after a strenuous workout or sports activity. Strained muscles cause the formation of fibrous tissues, adhesions, and scar tissue that are the main reasons for stiffness and pain during recovery.
The knowledgeable touch of a professional massage therapist at mhealth can help relieve discomfort, reduce pain, and relieve muscle tension to get your body back to normal. This helps to restore the elasticity of muscles, tendons, and ligaments around joints. Sports and remedial massage allows joint mobility to be restored more quickly, allowing your body to regain a normal range of movement and a state of top performance.
A soothing massage can also get rid of the stress that can cause headaches and migraines. Our trained massage therapists can advise you on the best massage treatment for your particular needs.
During a massage body fluids such as lymph and blood are pumped faster through the vessels. Increased circulation promotes facilitation that encourages the release of nutrients needed for the building of new muscle tissue. At the same time, toxins that are produced during long periods of intense training are removed.
During times of increased physical and mental stress, the immune system can become suppressed, affecting your ability to fight off common illnesses and affecting your overall health. Improved circulation from massage can aid cell regeneration, lymphatic response, and hormone release to boost your immune response.
The increased flow of blood enriched with nutrients and oxygen can help remove harmful metabolic waste that causes aches and pains.
Sports massage helps to reduce stress, tension, and anxiety to help restore a feeling of wellbeing. It stimulates our mechanoreceptors responsible for sensing touch, warmth, pressure, etc. – triggering a reflex relaxation action. Massage also releases the hormones that produce feelings of relaxation and euphoria. Remedial massage can improve your mental state, thereby increasing your overall quality of life.
