The Best Sports Massage in Orange County!
For those that don’t know, we’re now offering sports massage in Orange County, California!
Sports massage is a type of massage that deals with the muscles and soft tissues (such as tendons, ligaments, or fascia) around a specific joint and during activity rather than the whole body.
It also focuses on improving the range of motion of joints such as the shoulders, elbows, hips, and knees thus decreasing chances of injury.
The masseuse will use various techniques to help facilitate repair processes within the body – including increased blood flow, reducing muscle tone tightening or knots in muscles, etc. Most common here at OC Massage Therapy is our deep tissue massage!
What are the benefits of a sports massage?
Sports Massage Entails a combination of deep tissue with stretching implemented to improve flexibility and over function.
There are several scientifically proven benefits of deep tissue massage therapy, which include but are not limited to the following:
1) Drop in blood pressure:
A study published in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine concluded that when test subjects underwent a deep tissue massage for 45 to 60 minutes, their blood pressure dropped. Other studies have also reported similar findings.
One study specifically reported an average decrease of 10.4 mm Hg in systolic pressure and 5.3 mm Hg in diastolic pressure. Regular sessions of deep tissue massage can be highly beneficial for you if you suffer from high blood pressure.
This form of therapy is totally safe and unlike conventional medicines, it has no side effects whatsoever. On the contrary, you will feel radiant and youthful after the experience.
2) Reduction in chronic pain:
People who suffer from chronic pain just learn to live with it.
It severely affects their quality of life and hampers their ability to perform mundane tasks such as driving, lifting shopping bags, etc.
The conventional approach to treating chronic pain involves pain killers and if those don’t work – often surgery may be recommended.
As you may already know, pain killer tablets have serious side effects on the human body.
They don’t really alleviate the pain – they just corrupt the brain signals so that they cannot register the pain.
A person who is on painkillers usually feels drowsy and this prevents him/her from driving, performing to full potential at school/work, operating machinery, etc.
Why go through all this trouble when you can opt for a deep tissue/sports massage to get rid of chronic pain?
Not only is this form of treatment less expensive, but it is often more effective and has no side effects.
A deep tissue massage increases oxygen-rich blood supply to all parts of the body.
Oxygen is the basis of all life – it enables the muscles and tissues to heal rapidly. Proper blood circulation also decreases inflammation and loosens up tight clusters of tissues.
3) Stress relief:
When muscles are stimulated, the brain releases stress-relieving hormones such as oxytocin and serotonin. These hormones considerably improve mood and eliminate depression.
Having a bad day? Book a deep tissue massage and let our experienced therapist ease away all the stress and replace it with a sense of inner peace and silent joy!
These benefits can be achieved by using sports massage after exercise or training but equally effective used before to increase performance and reduce the risk of injuries occurring.
