Massage is a therapeutic technique widely used worldwide for the treatment and prevention of multiple pathologies. Currently, sports massage is widely used, as it consists of a series of techniques which aim to prepare the athlete before, during and after sports activity, in order to quickly recover his physical condition. As acupunctures we are likely to recommend practicing some type of stimulus at acupuncture points or also at trigger points or trigger points using the dry puncture technique, with electroacupuncture or laser therapy

In an athlete's life, frequent injuries and ailments are often common due to poor training or overburdening of their intensity. This makes visits to the chiroomasajista usually also part of their routines, either to alleviate these ailments, prepare the body before a hard workout or recover it when a great effort has been made.

What is sports massage?

We understand by sports massage a set of massage techniques whose objectives are to prepare the tissues for future effort, prevent future injuries, recover from injuries and improve the condition of muscle tissues after a great competition. That is, the target audience to which this type of treatment is addressed are the athletes who are preparing for a competition, who have just made an intense muscle effort and those with injuries or ailments that need to be repaired. However, sports massage can also be used as maintenance, being an essential part of an athlete's routines.

Types of sports massages

Depending on the specific objective of the massage in question, the techniques and movements will adapt to the situation. In this way, there is a fairly clear classification that differentiates sports massages according to their purpose or objective:

Pre-competition massage

This sports massage is performed before a competition with the aim of preparing the fabrics for a high intensity stress envelope. The best thing for this type of massage is to perform it a few hours before, although the ideal is 15 to 45 minutes before the competition and, with a maximum of 24 hours for the maximum effect to arise. Its purpose is to improve blood supply by activating circulation and neuromuscular excitability. It is made of proximal distal, is a vigorous massage and is performed with deep movements, this massage also seeks to improve contractibility, elasticity and muscle performance preparing it for competition. Thanks to it, we will be able to increase blood circulation and internal muscle temperature.

Recovering massage

In this case, the ultimate goal of massage is to recover tissues and relax muscle, reduce muscle spasms, eliminate lactic acid retention and metabolic residues, provide an emotional balance to the athlete. usually about two hours after intense exercise. Thanks to the recovering sports massage, we will be able to drain metabolic waste, reduce muscle hypertone and increase blood supply, as smooth, slow and deep movements are performed. It is advisable to undergo this type of massage the sooner the better right after the session in question.

Maintenance massage

Even if we do not have any competition, it is advisable to perform maintenance massages on a regular basis to be able to keep the tone of our muscles in an optimal state. Moreover, a maintenance sports massage can also be very useful for detecting possible future injuries, maintaining the natural elasticity of muscle tissue, detecting myalgia areas, etc.

The maintenance massage is a massage that is performed as part of the training routine of athletes, is carried out approximately once a week, lasts approximately forty-five minutes and aims to prevent injuries, prepare the muscles for physical training, locate possible adhesions of myofibrillas caused by muscle micro-traumas, and maintain muscle elasticity.

Acupuncture in Mallorca

Acupuncture is an ancient, painless and safe practice that aims to rebalance the energy of the body by manipulating different points of the body. In this healing technique used in traditional Chinese medicine, very thin needles are used to stimulate specific points in the body. Most of these points are placed on lines called "meridians".

In Acupuncture the disease is not defined by symptoms or by the name of a disease, but by energy imbalances, using terms such as Yin insufficiency or excess heat in the lungs.

The Chinese terms YIN and YANG refer to opposite energies that complement each other, and the term QI or CHI refers to vital energy.
