Sports massage has a number of benefits including preventing injury, restoring mobility to injured muscle tissue, boosting performance, maintaining the body in overall better condition and extending the life of your athletic career.
When a person receives a sports massage, their body releases neurotransmitters called endorphins.The pituitary gland and the hypothalamus in the brain produce endorphins which they act as the body’s natural pain reliever. Endorphins that are released due to receiving a sports massage help to decrease anxiety, provide pain relief, improve mood and enhance a person’s state of well-being.

Most athletes carry out a cooling down routine but often fail to do so after competition because of sheer exhaustion, elation or disappointment. Massage can be an adequate substitute for a warm down as it can achieve much of the same effect by removing muscle waste and deep tissue stretching.
