OVERALL BENEFITS

  • Prevent injuries and loss of mobility / flexibility

  • Cure and restore mobility to injured muscle tissue
  • Boost performance
  • Extend the overall life of your sporting career

PHYSICAL BENEFITS

  • 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.
  • Increased tissue permeability - Deep massage causes the pores in tissue membranes to open, enabling fluids and nutrients to pass through. This helps remove waste products such as lactic acid and encourage the muscles to take up oxygen and nutrients which help them recover quicker.
  • Stretch - Massage can stretch tissues that could not be stretched in the usual methods. Bundles of muscle fibres are stretched lengthwise as well as sideways. Massage can also stretch the sheath or fascia that surrounds the muscle, so releasing any tension or pressure build up.
  • Break down scar tissue - Scar tissue is the result of previous injuries or trauma and can effect muscle, tendons and ligaments performance. This can lead to inflexible tissues that are prone to injury and pain. After breaking scar tissue, new healthy tissue is created.
  • 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.
  • 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.

PHYSIOLOGICAL EFFECTS

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

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

PSYCOLOGICAL EFFECTS

Reduces stress, releases endorphines, relaxes the mind, improves depression, anxiety and insomnia, improves performance at work, sports and school.

CONTRA-INDICATIONS OF MASSAGE

This is when IT ISN'T RECOMMENDED to receive massage.
  • Virus, Fever, Infection, Contageous conditions: when massaged, the blood circulation is stimulated which can and will cause the virus, fever or infection to spread throughout the system
  • Skin disease, when in crisis

  • Abrassion, sun burn
  • Uncontrolled high/low blood pressure
  • By-pass: unless the doctor gives you green light

  • Tumour
  • First 3 months of pregnancy as the foetus is not 100% settled in the womb. It can cause miscarriage.
  • Kidney stones: massage can make the stones travel around the bloodstream and can get stuck in a vessel causing a clot that can turn into an embolism which affects the tissues that won't receive any more blood supply.
  • Risk of thrombus: very similar to an embolism but in this case the blood clot is created at the site of origin.
  • Osteoporosis over 30%: this a progressive bone disease characterized by a decreasing in bone mass and density which can lead to an increased risk of fracture. By massaging you are accelerating the deteriorating process.
  • Aneurosa: food poisoning
  • Epilepsy: unless the doctor gives you green light
  • Uncontrolled diabetes
