Whether you’re an Athlete, Sportsman or someone who just enjoys keeping fit, there’s one thing all can agree on. Keeping your body primed and ready to perform is an integral part to ensuring your body’s optimal health, be it pre or post workout. Via massages, stretches and warm ups, the body can be aptly prepared to take on any workout, or unwind from strenuous activity.
Optimised Massage Program: Coming into a workout session tired or sore from a previous session is not the most pleasant of experiences. Top athletes and sportsman use quick, spot massages to target and relieve tension in problematic areas. Whilst you may not have a team to do this for you, one of our ChiLink chair’s may be able to assist, with it’s own pre-set targeted towards pre-workouts which relieves tension and warms the body.
Warm-up: By gently stimulating the body and warming up core muscle groups, you are improving your body’s flexibility and natural response time.
Reduce risk of injury: Warming your muscles up and releasing tightness before your workout helps to reduce the chance of injury. By working tension from the body and muscle groups, you also reduce the risk of cramps, and drastically cut down on the severity of soreness and aches that are common after strenuous activities
Workout at optimum range: Getting you back in touch with your body will help to ensure that you get the maximum benefit from your workout, so you can perform at the optimum range for your body, not going too easy on yourself or pushing too hard and overdoing it.
Post workout, the body and it’s muscle groups are all fired up, under strain, or heavily worked and are requiring rest. Relaxation via massage therapy is one of the best ways to unwind from a high performance activity and allow the body to begin the recovery process. Reclining into your own chair to ease away the aches and pains you worked so hard to build up is a sure-fire way to enjoy this process!
Reduce DOMS: Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness is the muscle soreness that you feel after a workout. You can feel pain, discomfort or find it difficult to walk and move normally.
Speed recovery: Massage reduces inflammation and promotes growth of new mitochondria. By increasing blood circulation, you’re allowing your heart to pump more oxygen and vital nutrients to the area’s that ache most, speeding up your recovery process.
Help the muscle repair process: A solid workout causes micro tears in your muscle fibres. Massaging helps to increase blood flow, speeding up the repair process and strengthening your muscles for your next workout.
Release lactic acid build-up: Lactic acid build-up can lead to muscle pain and soreness. Massage helps to release this lactic acid which helps to prevent muscle soreness and fatigue.
Improve performance and endurance: Studies have shown that massage can improve performance and endurance by speeding up the rate that muscles and cells utilise oxygen. Over time, repeated post work out massaging will condition your body to capitalise on this, allowing you to p
Increase speed and agility: Massage releases tension and tightness in your muscles, joints, ligaments, and tendons. This helps to improve flexibility and range of motion, resulting in an increase in speed and agility.
