Sports Massage Therapy

Sports Massage is used pre-event to warm and awaken muscles and to enable the athlete to train and perform more consistently at a higher level. It is also used post-event to drain fatigue, relieve swelling, reduce muscle tension, promote flexibility, and to prevent injuries. Lighter Sports Massage is used post-event to cleanse the lactic acid build up from the muscles and to oxygenate the tissue. It is a faster more rigorous massage that can benefit the body before and after any sports activity.

This is a highly recommended treatment if you are involved in regular biking, swimming, hiking, running, weight lifting etc. When minor injuries and lesions occur from overexertion, massage can break them down quickly and effectively. The strokes are faster and more rigorous than most massage to either help the body wake up for pre-event or keep the blood flowing and eventually slowing down for post-event. Also involved is stretching and passive joint movement which facilitates loosening of the joints when limbs are being moved by the therapist.

Main Benefits:

  • Feels wonderful
  • Reduces blood pressure
  • Increases circulation and lymph flow
  • Improves flexibility
  • For Post Event:
    • Lessens chances of injury
    • Reduces recovery time
