Do you remember the last time you got a full night of pure, uninterrupted sleep? Did you know just one week of insufficient sleep alters the activity of our genes, which control our response to stress, immunity, inflammation and overall health?
Additionally, did you know you can help combat the effects of a busy lifestyle with a 60-minute massage touting the same benefits on your body as 7-8 hours of sleep?
Let’s be honest. Between carpools, desk jobs, lifting weights, logging training miles and everything in between, your muscles and your lifestyle take a beating every day. By incorporating a sports massage into your recovery plan, you can rest assured you’re staying proactive in pursuit of your goals rather than being reactive when the pain stops you dead in your tracks.
A regularly scheduled sports massage can relieve chronic pain, aid in muscle healing, facilitate toxin removal and eliminate scar tissue, as well as promote a better sleep cycle.
The Benefits of Sports Massage
The benefits and effects of therapeutic massage have been experienced for centuries. Studies have shown that massage can:
- Stretch and broaden muscle fibers and increase flexibility
- Relax muscle tension and increase postural awareness
- Decrease heart rate and blood pressure and decrease edema (swelling)
- Help remove toxins, break up scar tissue and loosen adhesions (“knots”)
- Release endorphins, the ‘feel good’ hormones that reduce pain
