Prevent sports injury with Shiatsu Massage Therapy
The regular practice of a sport inevitably causes tension and contractions in the stressed areas. Thus, when the blood supply is not optimal or a contracture becomes chronic, the tissues become fragile and become more susceptible to lesions.The Shiatsu Therapist can act in the prevention of a sports injury, for example by promoting muscle relaxation, balancing vital energy and activating the metabolism in his client. His intervention will be based first on a health questionnaire detailing in particular the sport practiced and the muscles used, the frequency of training and the history of injuries. Ultimately, the massage therapist will be able to identify the meridians that have voids or energy stagnations in order to intervene. To rebalance the energy through the meridians, the massage therapist will rely, among other things, on pressure, stretching and muscle and joint mobilization in the areas used in the athlete.
