Sports Massage or hands on treatment doesn’t have to hurt! And here’s why!

Scrap that; sports massage and hands on treatment SHOULDN’T hurt. The term no pain no gain does not apply to treatment and deeper is not always better or more effective when it comes to massage.

Quite often we will hear phrases in the treatment room like “I like when it hurts I know it’s working.”

Unfortunately this is a common misconception that is shared by many of what manual and sports massage therapy should be – but what you may not know is that what is going on inside your body has a lot less to do with the pressure or depth of the treatment, ‘beating’ the muscle into submission and a lot more to do with desensitising your nervous system and providing an optimum environment for your body to heal itself.

The colder weather has certainly started to set in over the past week or so; and with the summer we’ve had, the recent weather has come as a shock to most! – it has certainly lead to an increase in the number of people suffering with muscular and joint aches we have been seeing in the clinic of late.

As the shorter days and darker nights draw in, you may well have started to notice yourself that things just seem to feel like they ache more in the chillier weather (particularly those old injuries). But you’ll be glad to know that it might not all just be in your head and that there may indeed be several scientific reasons to explain why you are feeling this way.
