Massage is thought to be the oldest form of medical therapy practiced on the human body. The different types of massage and the various techniques that encompass them stem from our most celebrated ancient civilizations. Dating as far back as 2,700 B.C., ancient Eastern Chinese cultures practiced massage to heal a variety of ailments from labour pain to paralysis. For thousands of years, people have received tremendous benefit from massage. Whether by the release of tight, knotted muscles; or the remobilising of joints and connective tissue, enabling more freedom of movement; or simply the stimulation of blood flow promoting health across the entire body in innumerable ways or providing an overwhelming sense of relaxation. Pain is a signal - our body uses pain to tell us that it needs attention and action is required now. If ignored, the pressure point of the pain trigger can cause lockups where our body tries to isolate areas from further problems which can lead to more serious issues such as long-term immobility and degenerative diseases. Sports Massage is not a flowing massage, and can be a bit painful in attempting to reduce muscle soreness or tightness. After a sports massage you should feel fairly good, with an improved Range Of Motion (ROM). You may suffer from muscle soreness the next day around the area massaged, depending on the depth and duration of the massage. This is where the massage therapist requires good feedback, to ensure they are working to your comfort level.
