Sports Massage Therapy

How Is Massage Therapy Beneficial For The Weightlifters?

One specialty therapeutic massage type is sports massage. Kyron, Zaakirah, Eric, and Andrew are sports massage therapists skilled in this type of massage.
Sports massage therapy combines modalities for individuals involved in vigorous exercise or activity. Swedish massage, Myofascial release, Deep Tissue, Neuromuscular Massage, Trigger point therapy, assisted stretching, and foam roller exercises help clients relieve soreness, release muscle tension, help prevent injury, improve range of motion, and increase blood flow. Marathoners, High School Athletes, Weekend Warriors, and even those who have just begun an exercise regimen can benefit from massage. This massage is mostly about when to use which techniques to enhance performance, so it is best to schedule your session before or after your special event. Athletes can also benefit from regular therapeutic massages.

After conducting an initial physical assessment to identify areas of tension or discomfort, our team will tailor each session to provide maximum benefit. This will involve focused bodywork, targeted stretching exercises, and practical self-care tips to promote continued success beyond the appointment window.
