Sports Massage

Sports Massage is a broader term used to describe services that focus on the individual therapeutic needs and goals of an athlete. The muscle groups targeted in Sports Massage will vary based on the sport. This particular modality can be performed in a studio or at the event itself.

Maintenance (Inter-event) Massage

Whether you are training for a specific event or participate in some form of athletics on a regular basis, Maintenance Massage is designed to focus on the specific muscle groups being targeted along your athletic journey. Targeting specific muscles and/or specific muscle groups frequently in use as a part of your training regimen helps to decrease pain, improve performance and lessen the likelihood of training related injuries -- helping you to perform at your best. Studies have shown that massage therapy within 90 minutes of an intense workout or training can reduce residual muscle stiffness and pain by 50%.

Pre Event Massage

Pre Event Massage typically occurs within 90 minutes of the start of an event. Prior to any athletic undertaking, it is important for the athlete to be in peak form. Pre Event Massage is a series of strokes performed at an upbeat tempo to increase circulation, range of motion and flexibility, decrease pain, stiffness and nervous tension and allow the athlete to focus on the event with an enhanced sense of physical well being.

Post Event Massage

Post Event Massage focuses on bringing the athlete back to neutral and dealing with after care. The pace of this massage is slower and calming and includes dealing with pain and cramping and assisting with general medical care as needed.
