Sports Masage

Sports massage involves the manipulations of soft tissue

Connective tissue (known as soft tissue) covers skin, muscles, ligaments, tendons and fascia.

                                       Please note Mind & Body Flex temporarily postponed their services. 

First, the major purpose of sports massage is to lessen the tension. Therefore, to separate muscle fibres during a treatment. These build up in the soft tissues during exercise, for example. Because of repetitive movements at work or everyday activities. Besides that, the massage breaks down lesions quicker, certainly more effectively. To clarify, it restores suppleness in the body.

With the right application and ongoing communication with the client, this type of massage can enhance the working days. Also, athletic performance of the person. Above all, speed up ongoing recovery and prevent further injuries.



The Origins Of Sports Massage

Massage has been known already over 3000 years ago in China, India and Greece. At the end of the 18th century, Henrik Ling subsequently developed this form of treatment. Now is widely recognised as Swedish massage. Therefore, many of his ideas created the foundations of modern sports massage.

To clarify, these involve effleurage (long strokes), petrissage (kneading), frictions, stretching and compression

Benefits And Effects Of Sports Massage

  • Above all, it is beneficial to ANYONE suffering from ongoing injuries and chronic pain. Or a limited range of movements.
  • For instance, it maintains the physical body in better condition. Prevents loss of mobility. Therefore, helps to restore the movement of injured muscle tissues.
  • It certainly aids in improving imbalances in soft tissue because of repetitive physical activity.
  • Sports massage is deeper and more intense as opposed to regular relaxing therapy. Reduces muscle soreness and stiffness quicker.
  • Further, increases venous and subsequently lymphatic flow. To help with lymphatic drainage.
  • For example, improves the range of motion and muscle flexibility. As a result, helps with the healing of the tensed and/or overused muscles and tendons.
  • Meanwhile, take care of the ligaments and tendons while freeing the fascia. Which covers the entire muscular system (also known as the fine sheath). To clarify, if it is out of alignment, it may create a variety of pains, aches and also injuries.
  • For instance, frees muscle adhesions (tension). Softens scar tissues after injury. Relieves ongoing muscle pain and spasms.

My Clients Said

''Having never had a sports massage before, I felt quite nervous and self-conscious about having booked in for a treatment. Justyna not only put me at ease discussing fully the treatment that would be given showing me diagrams of how she would work on my muscles. After my 1st treatment, I certainly felt relaxed and not so tense. Most importantly, couldn't wait for my next treatment. So content to find her!''

''Justyna has such amazing massage skills. Consequently, I didn’t need to explain where my pain was coming from, as she could put pressure in the right places. Prior to the appointment, my entire body felt so tensed and knotted. However, following the massage, I felt so good as the pain had finally gone away. I also suffer from insomnia and what a better way to help my body and mind to rest!''
