What is Sports Massage?

ZahMal London Sports massages are often used for training and rehabilitation purposes, as well as, pre-training and post-training. Regardless of your fitness level, sports massages can improve ones performance by increasing blood flow, clearing dangerous metabolic by-products, reduce scar tissue and overall improves the body’s ability to digest and absorb needed nutrients.

A sports massage helps to prevent injuries by lowering blood pressure. The massage aids in reducing the amounts of cortisol produced by the body and reducing heart rate. This allows athletes and those working out to feel relaxed and revitalized.

The primary advantage of a ZahMal London sports massage is to drain away fatigue post-performance and promote relaxation. Pre-performance, the goal is to improve the elasticity of the skin and muscles to avoid tears and muscle strain which is ideal for any rigorous training routine. Sports massage therapy works to relieve the stress and tension that builds up in the body during an athletic event or workout.

We tend to develop minor injuries due to overextension. Sports massages break down the injuries caused by muscle lesions. Massages work to:

  • Promote flexibility
  • Reduce muscle tension
  • Provide relaxation
  • Improve circulation

Besides physical benefits, a sports massage provides physiological benefits. Sports massage aids in the reduction of anxiety and help with pain management. In fact, in a finding published by the “Journal of Athletic Training,” studies found sports massage services reduced the occurrences of Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness, DOMS, by over 30 percent. The best way to alleviate tired, cramped muscles is to expose them to heat, increase the circulation of blood through them and stretch them and ultimately get them to relax. All which are benefits of sports massage services provided by a ZahMal London Massage Therapist.

The Association of Sports Massage Therapists has also conducted studies showing there are increased psychological benefits to sports massage services. These benefits include:

A reduction in anxiety before beginning an athletic event or workout

  • Enhanced well-being feelings and rejuvenation
  • An increase in the awareness of the mind and body

Any type of healthful benefit reduces the risk of injury. A relaxed muscle is less prone to tearing and soreness than a tense muscle. Benefits of a sport massage that reduces injuries include:

  • A larger range of motion
  • Decreased neurological excitability
  • Increased elimination of lactic acid
  • Decreased recovery time between workouts
  • Decreased muscle spasms

My name is Zaequan Hutchinson and I am 15 years old. My friends and family would describe me as a caring, independent and very hardworking person, moreover, I am very persistent when it comes to doing work which will benefit me now and in the near future. A quote which identifies me best is "We think, mistakenly, that success is the result of the amount of time we put in at work, instead of the quality of time we put in." (Ariana Huffington- businesswoman and author). For my hobbies: I love music, although, I prefer writing my own songs and performing them in competitions and my free time than always listening to music artists. Fashion and make-up is also something I am passionate about, especially the make-up section, because it is fun to recreate and dress yourself in awesome outfits, which is a bit like acting, something else I am very fond of; where you behave like someone else for a while as with make-up where you can look like someone else for a while, even though most times I like to have a natural looking make-up on, as it is more original, and not to mention, its gentle on my skin. Though, I must say makeup is sometimes a negative thing for me as it is not kind on my bank account. I write for ZahMal London and OQAY Aroma London, not just because my sisters are the owners, but because I believe in their products and services, and I have seen great results from using their products and utilising their treatments; I write for this amaising company because they actually stick to their value of Giving the Organic Lifestyle you Deserve (GOLD)™.
