Whether the client is a professional athlete or a casual weekend enthusiast, there is a sports massage technique that can help. We have several specialists in this form of massage who have both the training and experience to target almost any soft-tissue sports injury.
Clients who opt for sports massage often see results very quickly.
The Benefits of Sports Massage
Sports massage is gaining rapidly in popularity and many athletes are adopting it as an important aspect of their regular training. By relaxing and working overused and tired muscles, benefits can be seen across the board. Running times are increased, efficiency in activity improves and overall performance is enhanced.
Sports massage is also designed to treat injuries. When compared to other forms of massage, this approach targets specific junctions of muscles and tendons, and can improve the range of motion in as little as 30 seconds. This sort of massage also reduces the soreness athletes experience following a rigorous workout if they receive treatment before or after their exercise. Finally, it promotes general health and wellness in athletes.
When treating injury, the massage therapist will carefully examine the potential causes of the injury that might need targeted for additional treatment.
Sports massage is recommended every week to supplement the normal exercise routine. We have several practitioners in this type of massage, who can work with clients to create a targeted approach for each client. Each client’s plan will work around their schedule and activity level to work best with their needs as an athlete.

The Goals of Sports Massage
Effective sports massage relies upon giving the treatment at just the right time. Certain activities will benefit from treatment before the event, while others require treatment after. Some athletes require help with rehabilitation from an injury. Each client is different and requires a different approach to treatment.
In addition, the techniques applied differ from person to person. Whether the technique is vibration, shaking, stretching, cross-fiber friction, compression, or posture improvement, the therapist must know which treatment to apply to any given situation.
