Whether you’re a top-class athlete or someone who trains for fitness or weight loss, a sports or holistic massage can help you reach your personal fitness goals, help prevent injury, improve your flexibility and give a wonderful sense of relaxation and well-being.
Specifically, massage will benefit you in the following ways:
- Pumping: Tight or damaged muscles can squeeze blood out of tissues thus depriving them of vital nutrients. Massage manually pumps the blood into the tissue to help speed up growth and repair.
- Permeability: Massage allows the pores in tissue to open, allowing waste products out and nutrients in.
- Stretching: Massage is a far more effective way of maintaining or improving flexibility than stretching alone.
