What is sports massage?

A type of massage that is geared toward lessening the negative impacts of strenuous exercise on your muscles, joints, tendons, ligaments, and soft tissues. A sports massage therapist needs to have a deep understanding of these body parts and how they can benefit from massage therapy. A good session will always consider your unique needs as an athlete.

How can sports massage benefit me and how does it work?

Sports massage is intended for athletes and others with physically-demanding lifestyles. You may have strain or injury from repetitive use, or you may have soreness and stiffness that makes it difficult to recover in between workouts. You might need to improve flexibility or boost your performance. Additionally, massage can help with muscle tension, anxiety, and aches/pains. All these things are great reasons to get a massage!

Sports massage works by increasing blood flow to your muscles and connective tissues, breaking up areas of scar tissue, and promoting healing within your body. Since a massage is calming, it can also help you mentally.

I received a deep tissue massage that relieved pain in my back and shoulders. Andrea was very professional and I would definitely recommend her to anyone who is experiencing daily discomfort.

Adam is a "must book"...listened to my shoulder related sports/shoulder injuries and subsequent lack of shoulder mobility(shoulder impingement). Adam focused in all the right places, had some interesting techniques specific to my issue, and a day later I was pain free at gym doing upper chest cable crossovers with full range!!!
