"The massage therapist is part of a dancerÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½s whole physiological team"
RECOVERY FROM PHYSICAL ACTIVITY
Instinctively the body heals itself it performs the recovery process through circulation of the blood flushing out waste products that build up in the muscles during intense physical activity. It provides nutrients and repairs any tissue damage however this process takes time and a rest period is necessary. DancersÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½ schedule often makes this required rest period very difficult to achieve. Massage is a safe and effective method of speeding up the recovery process.
OVERUSE INJURIES IN IRISH DANCE
Overuse injuries occur because muscles are worked hard during training, rehearsal or performance and are not rested fully. In the next class, rehearsal or performance the muscles are not fully recovered from the last session. It is as important to have a high quality recovery practice to maintain wellbeing and enhance your true potential. Overuse is the most common cause of muscular imbalances and injury in dance. If these are not noticed early on they can impair performance or worse can lead to chronic injures.
