Lucy has always been passionate about sport and fitness, and has become an experienced marathon runner and iron distance triathlete over the past ten years. Since becoming a mum she has continued to race at a decent level, albeit less frequently, still completing multiple marathons per year and often to be seen out pushing her running buggy along Bournemouth seafront.
As a keen runner and triathlete, Lucy has experienced the benefits of massage first hand, and believes strongly in its potential to provide a remedy for musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction caused by sport or life’s everyday stresses. Massage can relieve the symptoms of postural problems or chronic occupational fatigue, reduce stress, assist with emotions, improve self-awareness, flexibility and help with relaxation.
For sports people, it can offer the added benefit of speeding up recovery and therefore allowing better quality training, improved fine tuning and training methods, shorter recovery times, as well as a higher quantity of training. It can also help prevent injury or enable earlier identification of any problems.
Sports Massage treatment is a great compliment to Chiropractic treatment at our Lower Parkstone clinic in Ashley Cross. It helps to reduce muscle tension and also improve blood flow through the deeper tissues of the muscle, where flow can be poor. Limited blood flow leads to an accumulation of inflammatory chemicals and lactic acid that can hamper recovery or hinder performance. By improving blood flow these chemicals are flushed from the muscle and the result is reduced tension and improved endurance.
In addition massage helps to stretch the inner architecture or fascia of the muscle. This improves flexibility and again reduces pain and its effects on hindering good joint function and athletic performance.
Massage also releases endorphins helping you feel less pain and more relaxed so it’s very useful as part of a holistic treatment for stress and anxiety. Conditions that are on the increase in our busy demanding lives.
