Sports Massage is a technique that is used to help athletes in many different ways. Through stretching and deep tissue massage, this technique promotes flexibility and full functioning muscles to decrease the risk of injury, improve endurance, reduce post-workout recovery time and offer a more balanced training regimen.
Whether you are a high school athlete, perform at a college level, are a weekend warrior or like to work out to stay fit, our massage therapists can help you and your muscles be in the best shape. They work to decrease trigger points (knots), increase range of motion and increase the function level of your muscles to give you the edge you need to be a better athlete.
Frequently Asked Questions
How is Sports Massage different than a traditional massage?
Usually administered before or after exercise, sports massage therapy can help warm up muscles and aid in healing when an injury, stiffness or soreness is present. Sports massage is performed on athletes, and traditional massage is for everyone. Sports massage may perform stretching, while traditional massage generally will not.
I don’t play a sport, can I still receive a sports massage?
Definitely! Even the “Office Athlete” has a lot of the same discomforts as the competitive athlete, as well as the person who experiences a lot of repetitive movements on a day-to-day basis. So if you’re not a competitive athlete or don’t have any past or current injuries, Sports Massage can help you feel like it’s just easier to move without as much discomfort, often helping you feel that you have more range of motion.
