Remedial Massage for Injury Prevention!

Did you know that more fitness related injuries are sustained during this time of year? Remedial Massage may help to prevent injury and assist in faster recovery.

Our Williamstown remedial massage therapists Rani explains some simple points which may reduce your risk of injury:

  • Ease in to a new exercise regime
  • Ensure adequate recovery time between training sessions to allowing your body to repair
  • An adequate maintenance programme

Why Remedial Massage?

Remedial massage treatments in our Williamstown clinic have been demonstrated to accelerate the body’s natural healing response. It also assists muscle recovery during periods of increased physical exertion or stress.  It can also improve the quality of sleep; our body’s primary period of healing and recovery.

Remedial massage also reduces the length of time we experience muscular pain, or Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS) following physical exercise. It does this by assisting the body’s central nervous, lymph, and circulatory systems to remove waste products, reduce adhesions (knots) within muscle fibres, and lengthen muscle tissue; whilst also increasing blood circulation to ensure the body receives an adequate supply of oxygen.

Combined with Williamstown Osteopathy and Physiotherapy treatments and support, massage therapy is highly effective for musculoskeletal benefits before, during and after peak competitive sporting events as well. This is because remedial massage provides more than just assistance post-exercise. It is also an effective preventative measure for injuries related to physical activity.

You don’t need to be a professional athlete to reap the benefits of remedial massage though! Reduced stress, increased muscle recovery, improved sleep and reduced risk of injury are all integral aspects of health and wellbeing. Whether you’re working towards a fitness goal; or support to meet the demands of your work, family, or social life, Williamstown Health and Lifestyle is here to keep you doing the things you love!
