Our sports massage treatments include manipulative work, stretching, pre-training, post-training and sports injuries.
Sports Massage covers three main categories: event (pre and post), maintenance, and rehabilitation.
Event massage takes place before an event (or workout), as part of warming up, or afterwards, to reduce the muscle spasms and metabolic build up that occurs after intensive exercise.
Maintenance massage is designed to help the athlete reach peak performance through a routine program of massage. Rehabilitation massage aids in the management of both acute and chronic injuries. These benefits are valuable not only for athletes, but for anyone who works out on a regular basis.
Pre-event sports massage therapy warms up the muscles – getting the blood circulation going and allowing longer workout with reduced risk of injury, increased flexibility and greater range of motion .
Post-event sports massage therapy relieves muscle cramps and spasm, jump-starting the process of removing lactic acid build up in muscles that occurs with exercise.
Maintenance or rehabilitation sports massage therapy increases flexibility and range of motion, reducing muscle scar tissue formation, muscle soreness, stiffness, cramps and pain. Maintenance sports massage recharges and renews the body and reduces the risk of injury.
