Are you an Office Warrior?
Do you spend hours sitting at a desk?
Do you suffer from sore, tense neck and shoulders?
Have you had a sport injury that stops you performing your best?
Do you come home from work, shopping or the gym with aches and pains?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, more than likely, you will benefit from a sports massage. Massage is hands on pressure applied to soft tissues of the body to assist circulation, stretch muscles and to encourage relaxation.
Massage can have immediate results such as a feeling relaxed and calm. This occurs because massage prompts the release of endorphins, which is the chemical in the brain that produces feelings of happiness and wellbeing. Massage also reduces the levels of stress hormones in the body. This is important as high levels of stress hormones will slow the body’s ability to recover.
Massage therapy can be an effective treatment for lower back pain, delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS – soreness experienced after exercise), anxiety, stress, neck and shoulder pain, and headaches.
