The physiological effects are twofold as it is believed that sports massage works both mechanically and reflexively:
- Massage works the skin, fascia, muscle and connective tissue, which softens, lengthens and stretches the soft tissue. The results of which are greater flexibility and mobility.
- Reflexively it works to relax the mind and body and promote endorphin production, (natural painkillers). Massage is also a mood elevator.
- In addition there are strong benefits to the skeletal system, cardiovascular system, nervous system, lymphatic system, digestive and urinary systems.
- A balanced body is a muscularly pain free body.
Sports massage should not be a painful experience. The depth of treatment should be adjusted to each individual’s preference. Pain is not an indicator of gain.
