Another benefit of soft tissue therapy is the improvement of circulation. The improvement of circulation will enable the lifter to intake far more oxygen overall, result in in a more consistent breathing pattern, and aiding in natural and smooth movements.
As a result of heavy training (which usually causes microscopic damage to the fascial tissue and the muscle), consistent repairs need to be done. Repair is done by increasing blood flow, with the type of stroke and movement on the body, you are about to enhance the blood flow needed to repair damage.
It will also have a great impact on the lymphatic and blood circulation which will help the removal of waste from those area and support food and oxygen supply.
One of the things a lifter needs in order to achieve maximum performance is to exhibit a high level of flexibility. Soft tissue helps to actually stretch the muscle fiber, which helps to maintain and promote flexibility. Muscle tension is usually caused by high intensity training cycles and competitions which could lead to several effects; such as the disturbance of collagen scar tissue and also the development of several adhesions.
These adhesions could cause the fascia, muscle and other tissues to stick together causing lack of flexibility and a possible injury.
Due to overwork or injury, you could experience muscular pain in the body. Regardless your level of athlete, pain does not allow anyone to perform at their best. However, with effective massage, you can deal with the pain quite easily.
Especially pertaining to pain which is the result of physical activity and heavy training by athletes, these pains can be greatly eased with consistent massages.
