There are many health and performance benefits from receiving regular sports massage.
Sports massage improves blood flow and nutrient delivery to your muscles and assists with the removal of metabolic byproducts. It can improve the elasticity of the muscle tissue thereby improving the body’s long term ability to absorb nutrients.
Sports massage can also eliminate lactic acid and decrease the amount of soreness experienced after a long training session, otherwise known as delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS). Sports massage can aid in reducing inflammation and relieving tension in muscles, tendons and ligaments therefore promoting flexibility and improving recovery time and performance.
