Sports Massage

Are you looking to improve your sports performance?

Have you reached a “block” in your training and sports? If you find that no matter how much you train, you cant seem to improve in your timings and distance, the very thing that may be limiting you may be your muscles.

You see, for muscles to function and perform at their optimal level, they need to be well rested so that they will be relaxed and at an optimum length. Muscles that are too short or long will cause it to be difficult to contract and relax, impairing your muscular performance because your muscles have difficulty moving together in the right direction of firing.

How does your muscles impact your performance?

Muscle tightness, strains and tension affects a whole spectrum of performance sportsmen and sportswomen.

  • Cyclists who have tight iliotibial bands (ITB) and quads are not only ultra painful, they impair and limit one’s cycling cadence (directly impairing performance) and over the mid to long term, will cause knee problems.
  • Runners who have tight hamstrings almost always tends to have their strides shortened than normal – this means that every step is shortened. How bad can this be? It may cause you to take three – four strides compared to someone else of equal build as you who may only need two strides to cover the same distance.
  • Swimmers who have tight shoulder muscles will have limited swim stroke – sub-optimal swim stroke means that you are performing sub-optimally per stroke, leading to overall decrease in speed and higher risk of injuries.

Bottom line – it’d take you more effort and time to achieve the same distance.

Sports Massage Leads To Healthier Functioning Muscles

Tight muscles can benefit from regular sports massage which helps to prevent the muscles in your body to “stick together” or cause shortened/painful muscles. This is key on top of the regular stretching.

Some of the common misconceptions that people may have on sports massage is that it is similar to a regular spa massage that is freely available – this is not true. Sports massage refers to a scientific massage system which is built solidly on two key factors: a sound massage techniques plus a set of advanced clinical understanding of the human body and techniques.

You see, our muscles are not just made up of just muscle fibres – they are a super-complex structure that contains other supportive structures such as fascia, blood vessels, nerves and other connective tissues. This is where the advanced clinical understanding of the human body and techniques for them is crucial, and it’s what that sets us apart from spas, beauty centres and other therapy centres.

When we combine both approaches and techniques, sports massage helps to:

  • Increase nutrient-rich blood flow to tired muscles to accelerate recovery and shorten downtime
  • Breaks down those tight knots in muscles by mechanical pressure and stretch, and flushing out lactic acid
  • Brings the “used blood” back to the heart and lymphatic system, to bring a homeopathic and healthy balance back to the body
  • Prevents muscles from risk of micro-tears, ruptures and strains (tight and tired muscles are at much higher risk of tears and ruptures because of scar tissue, adhesions and presence of lactic acid).
