Remedial Massage Adelaide

Sports Massage Adelaide

Sports massage Adelaide by Gian Franco isn’t just for the elite athlete but may be beneficial for everyone. This form of massage can benefit people of all fitness levels, from professional athletes to those who exercise occasionally. It’s designed to focus on the deeper layers of the muscle tissue and aims to release tension by using a variety of strokes and deep pressure on contracted areas. Many people wait until they’re in pain or suffering injuries before turning to massage, but regular massage can help to prevent injuries or aches from occurring. Stretches can be incorporated to further enhance the massage allowing you to maximise your pre and post-performance.

The Benefits of Sports Massage is beneficial for:

● areas overworked through sport or occupational activities
● chronic tight tissues due to sustained incorrect postures
● injury rehabilitation, strains and tears due to exercise/sport
● fatigue or lactic acid build-up in muscles
● chronic muscular pain
● race preparation or recovery

Benefits of regular sports massage

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

What to expect in your session

You’ll be asked about your schedule, and seek information on your current condition and complaints. We may perform some preliminary testing and will inform you of the treatment plan. During your treatment, your massage therapist will incorporate a number of appropriate techniques and varying levels of pressure, always monitoring the response in your tissue to enhance its condition. As each patient experiences treatment differently, your therapist will ensure that the pressure being applied is always within your tolerance range. Following treatment, you may be given stretches or strengthening exercises by your therapist to help you improve your condition. As with all treatment types, it’s important to drink plenty of water afterwards to help eliminate metabolic waste from the body.
