How sports massage therapy works for athletes
The manual assistance of encouraging venous blood flow back to the heart enhances blood flow, which delivers fresh oxygen and nutrients to the tissue and promotes the removal of waste products and toxins. Because of the relaxed state you’re in during and after the massage, your heart rate lowers.
Being stretched during a massage is regarded as “passive stretching” this allows your body to relax while being stretched. This is the opposite of “active stretching” where the person is activating his/her own muscle in order to stretch it. This type of treatment allows the receiver to get deeper into stretches than you otherwise would. Sports massage therapy Kauai is our professional athlete clients preferred technique.
