ABOUT SPORTS MASSAGE
Sports Massage can be characterized two ways: pre-activity and post-activity massage. Pre-activity uses dynamic stretching to allow the connective tissue to work through a full range of motion, thereby reducing possible injury. Post-activity massage focuses on recovering the muscle tissue that may have been impacted doing the particular sport. It involves long strokes to flush out the toxins that causes soreness in the muscles and joints.
Firmer pressure and stretching techniques help alleviate stress and tension built up in the body’s soft tissues during physical activity. Mobility is restored while tight muscles are released, giving you ultimate relief while tailoring to your specific needs. One area of commonality between Deep Tissue and Sports massage is that each massage type uses similar strokes. This includes kneading, circular movements, tapping and vibrations. Sports massage uses similar methods of manipulating the skin, yet tends to be more focused on sports-related areas of pain.
Our Sports massage therapists can identify areas in which you experience muscle tightness or determine muscle abnormalities that could potentially lead to injury if left untreated.
