Massage Therapy Benefits:
Sports massage therapy is focused toward all athletes, from professionals to weekend joggers. Each therapeutic massage is specific to your sport of choice, with focus on a particular problematic area like a knee or shoulder. Athletes have discovered that specifically designed sports massage promotes flexibility, reduces fatigue, improves endurance, helps prevent injuries and prepares their body for optimal performance. Studies have shown a decrease in muscle soreness in athletes who receive a massage before or after exercise. Sports massage therapy 2-4 times a month may be a great addition to the normal regimen of those who participate in regular physical activity.
Sports Massage Benefits:
Deep tissue massage therapy has deeper pressure which is beneficial in releasing chronic muscle tension. The focus is on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons and fascia (the protective layer surrounding muscles, bones and joints). Studies have shown that blood pressure falls after a single 45-60 minute deep tissue massage. In addition, this massage treatment reduces stress hormone levels and heart rate while boosting mood and relaxation by triggering the release of Serotonin and Oxytocin. Deep tissue massage therapy is ideal for anyone who suffers from chronic pain or limited mobility due to athletic training, repetitive movements, and overuse.
