Tips on Sports Massage – Pre-Event Massage

With OSIM Singapore International Triathlon 2010 coming up, engaging sports massage (pre-event massage) could greatly aid in your training process.

The aim of pre-event massage is to:
– Help the body to respond well to the demands brought about by increased activity
– Facilitate maximum performance

When muscles are working, an increased supply of oxygen and nutrients are required as muscular activity requires a great deal of energy. It is essential that warm-up and stretching exercises are performed prior to any form of exercise as the body systems are slowly brought up to a peak level and therefore maximum performance can be obtained. Massage will help to obtain these effects, but under no account must it be used as a substitute for exercise. Massage improves the flexibility and extensibility of muscles, increases blood and nutrient supply to the muscles and help to maintain and increase joint mobility.
