Sports Massage for the Athlete!
Many Sports & fitness enthusiasts rely on regular massage as an important part of their health maintenance routine. This is because an area of chronic tension can impair performance & even lead to injury when stressed.
Assisted stretching, kneading, pre & post event along with various massage techniques can loosen areas of chronic tension before they become an issue for you!
MASSAGE THERAPISTS specializing in sports massage are trained to recognize & work with the unique demands that different sport activities place on the body, as well as to know when & when not to massage.
Sports massage is also extremely effective for individuals that use their bodies in a deliberate & demanding way…. WE like to refer to them as our “industrial athletes” ~~ in translation… that means YOU!!!
