Pre-Event Massage for Increased Power Performance

Anderson and Forde to research the effects of massage on performance thanks to a Massage Therapy of BC Seed Grant.

Massage has been used as a therapeutic modality for centuries in various capacities, including a long tradition in sport preparation and recovery. However, little research either supports or refutes the use of massage in a sporting context. 

There is a paucity of scientific evidence of the physiological effects of commonly used massage techniques, and to date, evidence as to the efficacy of massage in increasing muscular force is lacking. This study will examine the use of massage as an ergogenic aid and as an adjunctive therapy to dynamic warm up for increased muscular force production.

    Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and everything. However just imagine if you added some great photos or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and video clips, this website could undeniably be one of the greatest in its field. Good blog!

    It’s rare to get a professional in whom you can have some confidence. In the world in the present day, nobody actually cares about showing others exactly how in this subject matter. How fortuitous I am to have found a really wonderful web site as this. It truly is people like you that make a true difference currently through the strategies they write about.
