"Sports massage is the management, manipulation and rehabilitation of soft tissues of the body including muscles, tendons and ligaments."
The techniques used by sports massage practitioners have been developed to ensure effective and efficient results are gained from each massage given. Sports massage may:
• Improve circulation and lymphatic flow
• Assist in the removal of metabolic waste
• Sedate or stimulate nerve endings
• Increase or decrease muscle tone
• Increase or decrease muscle length
• Remodel scar tissue when required
• Assist in mental preparation for sporting participation.
You do not need to be a sports performer to benefit from a sports massage. The benefits above can also help relieve the many day to day problems, repetitive strain injury, sprains, tension, fatigue, that everyone experiences. Many sports massage practitioners work with a great range of clients in assisting with preventive treatment and injury recovery.
By ensuring you use an SMA and CNHC practitioner, you ensure that you will be receiving an individually tailored, high quality massage. Depending on the type and timing of activity these benefits can be achieved for anyone.
If you are a sports performer, of any level, a sports specific massage can be beneficial at various stages of participation. For example:
• The conditioning / training phase
• Pre competition
• Inter competition
• Post competition
• Post travel
• Injury prevention
• Injury recovery.
Regardless of your experiences in sport or exercise, whether you exercise socially or compete to an international level - sports massage may have something to offer you.
Members of the Sports Massage Association will be able to identify anyone for whom sports massage would be ill-advised or detrimental to their short or long-term well being. They will assess each individual and provide the appropriate massage techniques, and advise on alternative action if required.
