Elements Massage Mesa Riverview Apr 25, 2017 Athletics

If you regularly exercise, you know how to take care of your body, and you know the importance of making sure your workouts are safe. For runners especially, regular massage helps to reduce the risk of injury and increases the quality of your workout.

Why Don’t More Men Get Massages?

More than 70% of Americans that receive regular massage are female. Why? Of course, Men experience the same benefits of massage. Many men report feeling uncomfortable with another person touching their bodies. Others also site that they feel massage is simply a form of pampering, and ‘feminine’. Whatever the reason, the large majority of Men are missing out on the many therapeutic elements of massage. Massage can help men (and women) relive many of the problems they face in their day to day lives.

Massage and Athletics - Sports Massage

Elements Mesa Riverview Sep 17, 2016 Athletics

Whether you chose a sports massage or a standard therapeutic massage, if you live an athletic lifestyle, you need to be getting regular massage.

Massage therapy can improve everything from muscle recovery and flexibility, to decreased joint pain. There are 4 of the main ways in which massage makes you the best athlete you can be: 

Increase Circulation

Massage therapy manipulates the blood vessels to allow increased blood flow, allowing oxygens and toxins alike to pass through the circulatory system more freely. 

Promote Relaxation

Okay, this is a gimme. Everyone knows massage makes it easier to relax. Just try it and tell me I'm wrong. But did you know that this sustained catabolic state promotes recovery and muscle growth

Reduce Pain

One of the main causes of pain in the body is inflammation, which regular massage helps to reduce significantly. Another way that massage therapy reduces pain is by releasing endorphins, which is commonly associated with a "runner's high". 

Increase flexibility

Is there any sport where an increased range of motion wouldn't aid your performance? Just one session of massage therapy increases the length of your muscles, which helps range of motion and durability, as well as helps to prevent future injuries.
