Are sore muscles or joint pains holding you back?
Massage could be just what you need!
Do you struggle with tight muscles, small niggles or aches and pains? Has working at a desk affected your posture and given you tight shoulders? Perhaps your sport or leisure activity leaves you with muscle soreness?
If so, then massage can really help.
Massage helps to manage, manipulate and rehabilitate the body’s soft tissue, including muscles, tendons and ligaments.
Who can benefit from massage?
If you're a sports person, or someone who enjoys an active lifestyle, massage can help to ease muscular complaints by removing waste products, such as lactic acid, that naturally build up in the muscles post exercise or activity.
But massage is not just something that benefits athletes and sports people. Massage can also help with many other types of muscle soreness, such as neck ache from desk posture, or back ache from manual labour.
Massage targets trigger points by stretching out tight muscles, reducing tension and releasing endorphins (happy chemicals). This helps to relieve stress within the body, promoting better sleep.
Improved range of movement
Massage helps to improve your range of joint movement. It relaxes the muscles by reducing tension, allowing them to move more freely and easily.
Decrease muscle spasms
Muscle spasms can be caused by tension in the muscles, as well as by dehydration or high levels of stress. Massage can relieve spasms by stretching out tight muscles and targeting trigger points.
Massage helps to stimulate the bodies natural production of endorphins, reducing stress levels and promoting both physical and mental relaxation.
Less chance of muscular injury
By reducing muscle tension, massage helps to increase flexibility, reducing the chances of muscles being strained or torn during exercise or activity.
