Product Description

Sports Massage @ The Body and Mind Studio® Sports Injury Clinic

Along with Body and Mind Studio® Clinical Massage Fusion®, Sports Massage at Body and Mind Studio® is considered to be our speciality. Why? Our Sports and Clinical Massage Therapist, Paul, is a two-time solo English Channel swimmer and former GB open water swimmer with swims ranging in duration from 20 minutes to nearly 14 hours in water temperatures as low as 3 Degrees Celsius! He fully appreciates the necessity to keep the body in peak condition to enable it to perform at the highest levels and having regular (weekly) Sports Massage and/or Body and Mind Studio® Clinical Massage Fusion® and/or daily ANDUMEDIC® 3 massage, along with the correct diet and nutritional supplements for his blood type is key to this.

What is Sports Massage?

Sports massage is believed to stimulate circulation of blood and lymph fluids, but also uses many techniches used in Swedish massage as well as other techniques including trigger point therapy to break down adhesions (knots in the muscles), myofascial release and stretching to increase the range of motion for example as may be required in the treatment of a ‘Frozen Shoulder’.

Pre-event Sports Massage - Prior to your sporting event, a sports massage will help your body respond well to the demands brought about by the increased activity and to facilitate maximum performance. The massage will improve flexibility and extension of the muscles, increase blood and nutrient supply to the muscles (for energy) and help to maintain and increase joint mobility.

 
Post-event Sports Massage - After your sporting event, however extreme or easy it may have been for you, a Sports Massage should be performed as soon as possible. It will help to remove metabolic waste, which in turn will help speed up the venous and lymphatic supply to avoid the muscles becoming painful and tender. This prevents stiffness, relieves tension, increases nutrients and oxygen to the muscles which will help to prevent fatigue.

Benefits of Sports Massage

Regular sports massage is the most effective therapy for releasing muscle tension and restoring balance to the musculo-skeletal system. Received regularly, this may help athletes prevent injuries, which might otherwise be caused by overuse. A constant build up of tension in the muscles from regular activity may lead to stresses on joints, ligaments, tendons, as well as the muscles themselves. These muscle imbalances may develop and often go undiagnosed until they are serious enough to cause the athlete discomfort or impede performance. It may be reasonably claimed that one of the greatest benefits of sports massage is in helping prevent injury.

NOTE!
