Sports massage therapy is geared toward athletes of every kind, from world-class professionals to weekend joggers. We focus on areas of the body that are overused and stressed from repetitive and often aggressive movements.
Sports massage therapy is gaining popularity and it can be used as a means to enhance pre-event preparation to reduce recovery time for maximum performance during training or after an event.
Athletes have discovered that specially designed sports massage promotes flexibility, reduces fatigue, improves endurance, helps prevent injuries and prepares their body and mind for optimal performance.
One of the key benefits of Sports massage therapy compared to other modalities is its ability to target muscle-tendon junctions. A 2010 study found that even a 30-second massage improved hip-flexor range of motion.
