It can help maintain the body in generally better condition, prevent injuries and loss of mobility, cure and restore mobility to injured muscle tissue, boost performance and extend the overall life of your sporting career.

Physical effects

Pumping – The stroking movements in massage suck fluid through blood vessels and lymph vessels. By increasing the pressure in front of the stroke, a vacuum is created behind. This is especially important in tight or damaged muscle tissue as a tight muscle will squeeze blood out like a sponge, depriving the tissues of vital nutrients and energy to repair.

 Stretching – Massage can stretch tissues that could not be stretched in the usual methods. Bundles of muscle are stretched lengthwise as well as sideways. Massage can also stretch the sheath and fascia that surrounds the muscle, so releasing any tension or pressure build up.

Increased tissue permeability – Deep massage causes the pores in tissue membranes to open, enabling fluids and nutrients to pass through. This helps  because remove waste products such as lactic acid and encourage the muscles to take up oxygen and nutrients which help them recover quicker.

Opens micro-circulation – Massage does increase blood flow to tissues, but so does exercise. What massage also does is open or dilate the blood vessels and by stretching them this enables nutrients to pass through more easily.

Scar tissue – Scar tissue is the result of previous injuries or trauma and can effect muscle, tendons and ligaments. This can lead to inflexible tissues that are prone to injury and pain.

Improve tissue elasticity – Hard training can make tissues hard and inelastic. This is one reason why hard training may not result in improvements. Massage helps reverse this by stretching the tissues.


Physiological and Psychological effects of massage

Relaxation – Muscles relax through heat generated, circulation and stretching. Mechanoreceptors which sense touch, pressure, tissue length and warmth are stimulated causing a reflex relaxation.

Tissue elasticizing

That implies better body movement, better free articulation and muscular, better own reception of the posture and body movement

Better blood circulation
Better nutrition and oxygenation at the muscular level

Pain reduction – Tension and waste in muscles can often cause pain. Massage helps reduce this in many ways including releasing the bodies endorphins.

Anxiety reduction – through the effects mentioned above relaxation is induced and so reduces anxiety levels.

Invigorating – if massage is done with brisk movements such as what would be done before an event then this can produces an invigorating feeling.
