Here are 5 reasons why you need a Sports Massage, even if you don’t do sports…
To help you keep moving
Plasterers, Bin Men (and ladies), Gardeners, Mechanics, Hairdressers. What do they have in common? Yes, they all move a lot. These jobs require lots of manual dexterity and regular movements that can cause pain in the hands, wrist, shoulders, and back. Also factor in that these people are self-employed, therefore no work, no $$$ (or £££). So book yourself in for a Sports Massage every month and we’ll keep you moving, keep you pain-free and help you stay in optimum shape!
To take less pain medication
Some people take pain killers because they have aches or pains. You may know them. I’m sure that they do this in response to everyday aches that may have built up over time, maybe because there joints and muscles are strained due to bad posture at work? Think of a Sports Massage as a service, like you’d treat your car too. Keep your body moving, loosen your joints and take less meds!
It’s quicker and easier than going to the gym!
Of course, I’m not suggesting that you have a massage instead of going to the gym if you’re looking for exercise, indeed I would suggest that you check out my article about how to choose a gym if you want to get fit. Sometimes though, you just need to get your posture or specific muscles worked on, you maybe don’t have time to go to the gym and you just need to get your muscles worked on. Come and lie down my couch!
To prevent injury
Bodies get injured, whether or not you’re a sportsperson. Sometimes you may pull a muscle, sometimes you may be out of balance. Your Sports Massage Therapist can help identify these problems as part of your treatment, and help advise you of how to prevent little things from becoming a problem.
To help your Back
Back pain is one of the biggest reasons people see a physical therapist. Sitting at a desk or driving are some of the biggest causes, caused by the pelvis tilting forward. It’s probably one of the major factors in people taking time off work, again this can be problematic if your self employed, as more and more people are these days. So yes, you’ve guessed it, go and get a Sports Massage. Your therapist can loosen the muscles in your back, keeping you moving and ensuring you stay pain-free.
