Heal faster. Perform better. Sports Massage is an important part of any athlete’s training program. Whether you are an amateur or a professional athlete, regular sports massage sessions can help you avoid and recover from injury, achieve optimal health, relieve muscle tension and chronic pain, and gain the edge you need in sports performance to excel.
Sports Massage is a deep tissue massage treatment given by a licensed massage therapist that targets muscle-tendon junctions. Sports massage therapists work with each of our patients on a specialized plan with massage techniques that best fit their athletic goals and health needs. Sports massage is a valuable therapy for all levels of athletes and can be helpful at any stage of the training process. Pre-event massage will stimulate and warm the muscles. Post-event massage will help an athlete with active recovery by clearing out toxins, increasing blood flow, releasing lactic acid, and reducing swelling, in addition to helping prevent muscle soreness. Maintenance massage relaxes and tones tight muscles during a period of heavy training.
If you are a competitive athlete looking for better range of motion and increased flexibility, regular sports massage treatments can have dramatic impacts on your athletic performance and allow for an active lifestyle. They can both improve recovery time and speed up the healing process.
