SMART Sports Massage
SMART Sports Massage
Massage has become an integral part of the new athletic regimen. A growing number of trainers believe that massage can provide an extra edge to athletes who participate in high performance sports. Massage is a necessary ingredient for a complete workout. More and more people are realizing that a complete workout routine includes not only the exercise itself, but also caring for the wear-and-tear and minor injuries that naturally occur with strenuous movement. The physiological and psychological benefits of massage make it an ideal complement to a total conditioning program.
Anyone who routinely stretches their physical limits through movement such as running, cycling, swimming, strength training and conditioning and playing team sports like football, rugby and hockey, can benefit from a deep tissue sports massage.
If you are just starting out on an exercise program, or if you are coming back from an injury, deep tissue massage can help get your muscles back into shape and smooth out the inevitable knots and tightness.
But sports massage is not just for athletes: there are others who do strenuous activities in a day that is not normally classified as exercise, such as mothers with small children, gardeners, and others who use their bodies strenuously in their work. It’s also important for older people who want to keep active for longer.
Incorporating massage in your conditioning program has many benefits. It helps you get into good shape faster, and with less stiffness and soreness. It helps you recover faster from heavy workouts, and relieves conditions which may cause injury.
