Benefits of massage for weight training and gym work.
So January is the month where many of us decide to shed some of the extra pounds gained during the festive period.
Adding deep tissue massage with your gym training is the perfect partner! The treatment that I do, Raynor Massage is particularly beneficial. Raynor Massage is of real benefit to athletes and gym users but works differently to sports massage. This particular deep tissue technique works on a much deeper level than regular sports massage and is successful in removing muscular tension associated with sports injuries. Sports massage tends to focus on the part of the body that is tense or damaged whereas Raynor Massage treats the whole person. I recognise that one part of the body may be tight but that area is likely to be held tight by another area which could then also be held tight by another area again and so on. I am not just relieving the area that is sore but working the whole body to find the deep rooted cause of the problem. It is for this reason that the treatment can be effective and long lasting. Many people have also found that deep tissue massage can actually aid muscle recovery after a particularly strenuous workout.
Many people tend to think of massage as a method of treating injuries or even as a luxurious treat. However, more and more regular clients are realising that having regular treatments actually help prevent the injuries in the first place.
