Sports Massage from a Massage Chair Recliner

Posted on: December 21, 2009

The power of massage from a massage chair recliner can help injured athletes get back into the action quickly.  Sports injuries respond well to massage therapy.  Massage can help muscle strains, ligament sprains, tendinitis, tennis elbow, carpel tunnel syndrome, plantar fasciitis, and sciatica.  Usually, massage therapy can be started immediately after the injury, but be sure to check with your physical trainer or doctor before starting treatment.   Massage is 100% natural and totally safe when done correctly.  It can be utilized as a stand-alone treatment or as an accompaniment to other medical therapies prescribed by your physician, physical therapist or trainer.

Studies show that massage helps improve muscle function, and reduce swelling and inflammation in recently exercised muscles.  Vigorous exercise causes micro-traumas to your muscles as well as a build-up of cell waste, which can leave you feeling sore and tired.  Massage helps increase circulation.  Increased circulation helps your body rid itself of toxins and cell waste and helps bring refreshing nutrition to cells and tissues.  Research showed that when muscles were massaged after exercise, they recovered 60% strength and had fewer damaged muscle fibers as opposed to those muscles that were exercised and then rested, which recovered only 14% strength.  Sports massage from a massage chair can also stimulate the production of joint lubrication and increase your range of motion.  Contracted muscles from training and exercise can potentially push on nerves in your legs, hands and arms – which can lead to pain or a tingling sensation.  Massage directed at the muscle spasms in your hips or shoulders can help release those tight muscles, thereby reducing pressure on your nerves and curing the pain and tingling.

In addition to helping restore strength to vigorously exercised muscles and being effective treatment for sports injuries, sports massage from a massage chair can help strengthen your immune system and encourage the flow of lymph throughout your body.  A strong immune system can help your body fight off illness and injury in the future.  Being able to avoid future injuries can help make you a more successful athlete and an overall healthier person.

Massage has also been proven very effective in stress, depression and anxiety reduction.  Such psychological issues, (which before may have caused performance issues and may have even caused insomnia and other problems), no longer need to hold athletes back.  Sports massage from a massage chair recliner can help!  Massage can also increase stamina and energy while promoting a healthy balance in your body and mind.  Massage chairs are super convenient, (no trying to work massage appointments into your already busy schedule), and can be used in the privacy of your home.  With the best model chairs, you can totally customize your massage experience as well.  You can program your chair to focus on those body parts that are sore or that just need some extra attention, or you can opt for a relaxing full-body massage.
