Sports Massage Therapy

This specialized type of massage uses a combination of gliding, compression, cross fiber friction and stretching techniques and is used on specific muscle groups to help relieve discomfort or pain resulting from physical activity. Pre-event or conditioning bodywork treatment uses stretching and short, invigorating, stimulating strokes directed towards parts of the body involved in the exertion. Post event or restorative bodywork treatment uses dynamic stretching and slow, gliding and kneading strokes to normalize muscle tissues, stimulate blood and lymph fluids and trigger point therapy to rid the body of knots in the muscles and increase range of motion.
