How Does Sports Massage Help?

Stress from sport, injury, or the many strains of everyday life can be taxing on your sympathetic nervous system. A professional sports massage can help you feel better by stimulating your parasympathetic nervous system, which has scientifically-proven benefits to help improve your mood and reduce anxiety

Of course, mood and anxiety are complex issues which are influenced by more than simply whether or not you have a massage regularly or not. But research has shown that there is a direct link between Deep Tissue Massage therapy and an improvement in mental wellbeing. Massage is linked with a lowering of stress hormones along with an increase in the necessary ‘feel good’ hormones and neurotransmitters. 

As our name suggests, we are passionate about understanding the science behind claims. We spend time getting clear on the facts, which allows us to inform and educate all our clients each time they visit us. Here’s a bit more insight if you’re interested to learn more about the evidence behind the benefits of sports massage.
