You might be asking yourself, ‘What is the connection between a massage and your gym routine?’ Well, we would like to explain to you. You might associate a massage is to a ‘luxurious’ activity, it’s something you do when you go on holiday or something you do on a spa day. Well, we would like to challenge this belief. Let us elaborate on what we mean.
You work out to improve your physical body, right? Or you might want to improve your health and be a peak, performant person. An athletes’ peak performance depends on the proper use of a sports massage. It’s not something you do to overcome injuries, it’s something you do to prevent injuries. A sports massage creates overwhelming benefits physically, physiologically and psychologically.
Let’s talk about injuries, shall we? We don’t want to be all negative but we have to talk about things that are not really comfortable. One of the best reasons to get a sports massage is to help your muscles, tendons and joints move through their proper range of motion and stay in optimum shape. Think of it like a warm-up, a pre-work that you know that you absolutely MUST do. Don’t you want your muscles to be warmed up before you hit the gym?
Do you know the number one cause of injuries for people who visit the gym more than three times per week? It’s overusing certain muscles. What happens when we overuse our muscles? Think. We are waiting. Pause and think. Okay, let us tell you – it results in soreness, pain and inflammation. Regular sports massages can help reduce the like hood of the muscles becoming overused in the first place.
This is we believe that is one of the most important reasons why you should consider and start doing a regular sports massage. It’s a no brainer really.
Another great reason why you need a professional sports massage in Kings Cross because it will help you decrease stress and increase focus. Don’t you want to be more focused when you lift? Imagine you lifting ten more KG, imagine running an extra 5K? You can achieve that by being laser-focused. A massage will put you in a very good psychological state before your next workout or even race.
Did you ever wonder why football players and athletes always have a professional massage therapist with them consistently? It’s because they want to perform at the highest level, they want to be peak performance people that’s why.
We don’t like to brag, but we have a lot of clients that are fitness ‘freaks’ and they keep coming back to us to do a massage therapy so they can perform better. Here’s what Dimitri said on Google Reviews: “Had a stiff neck. The therapist really helped me to get rid of all stiffness and nods. The staff was very friendly and explain to me everything. Good place”.
We have high standards when it comes to massage, and we do have another brand that you might not be familiar with called PRO Massage, which is for a sports massage and more advanced techniques.
Our MD, Andrew says that sports massage is part of your rest cycle, it’s a very important element of your training. It will speed up your regeneration process and allow you to go through the physical barriers of your body. After a professional massage you will instantly see that you have a better range of motion in your joints, more flexibility and better endurance of your muscles.
There are tons of benefits of doing a sports massage, we could write a book with evidence but you know what?
