Why Autumn is an Important Season for Athlete Massages
When school starts back up and the kids get back into team sports, there’s a lot of practice involved. Training each day after school, your kids are running on the track, cheerleading, playing football, hockey, soccer, and more, and if you’re active, you might be part of an adult league too.
Along with all this training though comes the many strains, sprains, fractures, tears, and other injuries. This is why autumn is one of the most important season for athlete massages. Massages can help you perform even better at your chosen sport. They can also help those that don’t play sports keep flexible and mobile.
How can massages help you and your family this autumn?
– Better range of motion
With regular massage, a better range of motion is achieved which means better athletic performance with less chance of injury. Massage gets the blood flowing to relieve tension in the muscles and make for speedier recovery.
– Reduces inflammation
Inflammation can come on from strenuous exercise, and without reducing it, it can lead to injury. Massage helps the body repair itself after a strenuous workout and quells that inflammation for a healthier body overall.
– Pain reduction
Training hard for sports can hurt! Massages help our cells create more energy which helps promote the healing process. This allows your body to recover more quickly after training, competitions, and games.
– Necessary relaxation
Whether your kids are the athletes, you are, or the whole family engages in sports, massage provides necessary relaxation from your stresses. Don’t think of it as a luxury though. That’s the biggest mistake people make with massages. Healing the mind and body through massage will keep you healthier overall and as an added bonus, it will leave you feeling relaxed and ready to tackle anything you come up against.
– Prevents injury
Massages before a big game can help prevent injuries. Because they reduce inflammation and improve range of motion, this greatly reduces the chance that you might be injured during a big game and improves your overall performance.
