Prevention Always Better

It’s worth specifically focusing on the injury-preventative side of Massage Therapy. As mentioned above, injuries can cause havoc and anything that has the potential to minimise an injury, is an advantage for sure. For this reason, sports massage in our Sydney clinic is very popular: Improving mobility of joints and integrity of muscles, reducing tension and stress, increasing blood flow which floods the muscle cells with nutrients while removing toxins. All of this can help to prevent injuries or if there is an injury, the damage may be lessened.

The Science Can Help You

In 2012, Science Translational Medicine published an article “Massage therapy attenuates inflammatory signalling after exercise-induced muscle damage” by Justin D Crane 1, et al. The study showed numerous positive effects form massage after exercise induced muscle trauma, including mitochondrial biogenesis signalling and reducing inflammation – both really good things to have post exercise.

Mitochondria are the powerhouse of the body, converting nutrients into energy and thereby help in improving the overall functioning of the muscles and the anti-inflammatory effects of massage help muscles to work more efficiently as well.

The sports massage therapist in our Sydney clinic understands the science behind massage and this is one of the reasons you will receive an outstanding treatment, taking advantage of tried and tested massage techniques as well as utilising scientific research.
