SPORTS MASSAGE THERAPY

Problem areas are addressed using specific techniques that include: deep tissue, acupressure, trigger point, myofascial release, muscle energy technique and passive stretching. Powerful, slow, deep movements aid the release of shortened muscles. This type of massage is excellent for chronic pain, tightness, injuries, muscle spasms, body aches, headaches and more.

Sports Massage can be geared toward athletes of every kind, from world-class professionals to weekend warriors. The focus of the massage technique are specific to the athlete's sport of choice. This massage is targeting areas of the body that are overused and stressed from repetitive and often harsh movements. Remedial massage therapy's core focus is on maintaining and recovering mobility while acting as a referee on the effects of recovery and long term heavy usage.

This therapy is perfect for gearing up for that marathon you've been training to tackle or after that run you've been putting off every weekend for the past few months. 

Having a massage before your event will help prevent injury and increase your range of motion, while having your treatment after your sport will help relax and stop muscles from shortening which can lead to DOMs and further injury. 

This massage is excellent for CrossFit athletes. How do you get under that Clean & Jerk if you can't get your arms over your head? And how will you ever walk around after that WOD when you fear moving your legs? Let me give you a hand with that!

Pairing this massage therapy with Orthopaedic cupping works wonders for clients that have limited range of motion. When using the deeper massage techniques, Orthopaedic Cupping and active stretching modalities, clients are able to gain an added 10-12% ROM with certain movements. 

 Injuries are treated with a combination of specific strengthening and stretching exercises as well as massage release techniques. You will also be prescribed exercises to assist in your recovery to do at home.
