SPORTS MASSAGE

Massage is a series of manipulations and/or manoeuvres carried out by the therapist using their hands and applied to the human body methodically and reasonably with preventive, hygienic, therapeutic, rehabilitative and psychological aims. Sportspeople will, in many cases, need to prepare their muscles and joints before sporting activities, which they will do through a warm-up. Finally, they will also need to soothe their muscles after exercise and even treat minor pains that may have arisen during training or competition.

GALIUS offer a range of products to make massage techniques more effective.

TYPES OF MASSAGE
There are various types of massage and different types of manoeuvre. It is important to know which ones will be most useful in each case, but that is only achieved with day-to-day experience:

• Soothing and decontracting – physical and mental relaxation.

• Stimulating – to increase the excitability and temperature of the muscle through pre-exercise massage.

• Toning – to improve muscle capacity, elasticity and contractibility.

• Calming and analgesic – to relax the muscle and reduce or annul pain.

• Elimination of detritus and waste substances from the muscle – to improve venous and lymphatic circulation and favour the entry of nutrient- and oxygen-rich arterial blood into the muscle.

GALIUS PRE SPORT OIL

FOR MASSAGE BEFORE EXERCISE WARMING EFFECT IN

COLD WEATHER.

With carnitine, arnica extract, hammamelis and aloe gel.

It is essential to warm up your muscles before exercise to increase their elasticity, as well as that of ligaments and tendons, and to avoid the risk of injury. In everyday life, on a great number of occasions, the sportsperson does not have time to warm up, thereby taking a great risk of damaging their muscle fibres, particularly if they start their physical activity shortly afterwards. On cold or rainy days, warmup time should be increased by at least 15 minutes before starting exercise. In order to alleviate the negative effects of a lack of warm-up time, it is a good idea to massage long-lasting pre-sport oil into the skin. The use of these active principles together with a good connecting thread such as Galius oil is perfect for this goal.

OILS AND MASSAGE MEDIA
So that the masseur’s hands can slide easily over the skin without causing irritation or rubbing, they need to use a massage medium that aids the manoeuvres. There are many substances that they can use for this, most notably oils, creams, pomades, gels, unguents and talcum powder. The most widely used are oils and gels.

GALIUS  offers an extensive range of massage media products so that you can use them according to the type of massage to be applied.

GALIUS Massage oils have the following advantages:
• They maintain their solid form at room temperature, becoming oils that are highly spreadable and with great sliding capacity.
