Regular Massage Can Help Improve Your Golf Game... Here's Why:
One of the goals of massage is to help relieve tension in muscle tissue where there is tension and stress. All that built-up tension can cause restriction in our blood circulation as well as the supply of nutrients going to all the body’s tissues and organs; massage can help decrease nerve compression, increase joint space, and range of motion.
Golfers tend to have similar patterns of tension and restriction in their muscles. Some very typical patterns we see include pain in the upper to mid back radiating into the neck and down the arms into the elbows. Many golfers also suffer from tight hamstrings and calves. Using advanced therapeutic massage techniques such as trigger point, myofascial release, active isolated stretching, and medical massage our team of expert therapists can relieve this tension and pain, allowing you to get back on the course faster and improve your game.
This may lead to decreased pain, as well as increased function in mobility and range of motion. It also helps with circulation, which helps improve the way oxygen and nutrients are delivered to muscle cells, and help remove waste products.
Many people treat themselves to a massage every once in a while, which is without a doubt great both for their physical and mental health. However, regular massage therapy will provide you with much more benefits.
You’ll start living a happier and healthier life if you get massages regularly.
The majority of people today deal with a lot of stress. Worrying about paying the bills on time, family problems, an unpleasant work environment, and the general hustle and bustle of daily life can all lead to a huge amount of chronic stress, which ultimately leads to ill health, and an increased risk for serious disease, such as heart disease, stroke, and others. One of the best ways to relieve yourself of the excess stress and anxiety in your life is massage therapy.
Massage therapy is not only able to relax certain muscles in your body; it can put your mind into a state of deep relaxation as well. Not only that, but it will also trigger the release of brain chemicals called endorphins, which battle stress and enhance your mood.
On top of that, massage therapy will stimulate the release of other feel-good hormones, such as dopamine and serotonin. By elevating the presence of these hormones, you’ll decrease the production of the stress hormone known as cortisol.
By relaxing both your body and mind, massage therapy will improve your sleep quality, which in turn promotes good mental health.
Not getting enough sleep can lead to slowed down thought processes, memory loss, and unhealthy food choices. People who don’t sleep enough tend to have elevated stress and anxiety levels, but massage can help with too.
