World Class Athletes Know the Proven Benefits of Sports Massage

SPORTS MASSAGE is a rapidly evolving sub-specialty within the overall field of professional massage therapy. It combines classic and specific techniques designed to provide therapeutic impact for the unique physical and biomechanical needs of athletes.

Contemporary athletes, both Olympic class and “weekend warriors”, leave nothing to chance in their attempt to produce faster speeds, lower times, maximum effort and peak performances. They are incorporating the latest sports technology in their training programs. More and more of these athletes, at the amateur, college, and professional level, have discovered the benefits of SPORTS MASSAGE. And since massage has a cumulative effect, the more consistent the frequency of treatment the more benefits are reaped.

Sports Massage Can Help:

IMPROVE circulation and mobility to injured tissue, thus maintaining an optimal state of nutrition, relaxation and flexibility.

ENABLE the athlete to recover more quickly from myofascial injury with less likelihood of chronic problems developing.

REDUCE muscle soreness and chronic strain patterns, thus allowing a quicker return to maximum training levels.

PROVIDE a psychological boost to the athlete consistent with his/her commitment to peak performance.

ENHANCE a preventative approach to athletic training whereby soft tissues are free of trigger points and adhesions, thus contributing toward the improvement of peak neuro-muscular functioning.

Sports Massage Includes:

PRE-EVENT approaches prior to athletic events, which stimulate circulation, calm nervous tension and prepare an athlete for maximum output.

POST-EVENT massage treatments, which relieve soreness and assist in the removal of lactic acid promoting muscular relaxation and improved circulation.

RESTORATIVE or MAINTENANCE massage focusing on trouble spots and soft tissue stress points to prevent chronic injury from developing.
