Massage in Judo and Other Sports: It's Benefits, Types and Uses

Increasing Trend To Provide Massage At Judo Competitions

I have noticed, in recent times an increasing trend to provide massage at Judo competitions. Having studied the skill as well as having some knowledge of acupressure points I am aware of many of the benefits and think this is an excellent trend. I was reminded of this when I came across this article.

Without a doubt, massage is a favourite injury rehabilitation technique. Properly applied by a qualified person, provided it is medically safe to do so, it could even be considered “the” most effective form of therapy for speeding up the healing process and preventing re-injury.

The article covers several very good reasons why massage should be a priority both for injury prevention and rehabilitation.

It also covers many of the types of massage, including; trigger point therapy, Swedish, deep tissue, sports and self-massage.

Many athletes, including swimmers, golfers, footballers of all codes and of course Judo players will take advantage of a masseuse or masseur when they are available to them or their team because of the many benefits

For anyone participating in regular physical activity, sports massage therapy every week or two may be a great addition to your normal regimen.
