Sports massage therapy is geared toward athletes of every kind, from world-class professionals to weekend joggers.
Sports Massage can help to reduce fatigue, alleviate swelling, reduce muscle tension, promote flexibility, prevent injury, and prepare the body for performance. Typically, it is used before or after an athletic event, and many athletes use it regularly as an integral part of their training regime.
It is used on areas of the body and muscles that are overused and stressed, being over extended from repetitive and often aggressive movements.
It is this overuse that may often create problems and imbalances in the soft tissues. If these are ignored and allowed to become chronic, they will not only hinder the athletes rate of improvement, but in many cases, their performance will also suffer.
Sports massage can treat a variety of ailments and injuries that can result from exercise. It helps
athletes be more efficient in their training, as well as aiding recovery from injuries or muscle fatigue.
Some benefits of sports massage include:
- Draining Away Fatigue
- Relieving Swelling
- Reducing Muscle Tension

- Help to heal Injuries From Overexertion or Overuse
- Relieving Pain
- Increasing Blood Circulation and Lymph Flow
Sports massage is beneficial for you, regardless of whether you exercise for recreational purposes or participate in sports at the elite level.

Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage therapy is similar to Swedish massage, but the deeper pressure is beneficial in releasing chronic muscle tension. The focus is on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons and fascia.
Deep Tissue Massage releases the chronic patterns of tension in the body through slow strokes and deeper pressure on the contracted areas, either following or going across the grain of muscles, tendons and fascia. It can help reduce pain, increase range of motion, relieve muscle spasms and improve circulation.
Each and every massage therapy treatment will be tailored to your individual health need.
