Sports Therapy is a type of focused bodywork utilized by athletes of all levels. Each treatment is curtailed to meet the athlete's individual needs, based upon the type of sport and overall goals for the session. Sports therapy is used before, during and after athletic events, as well as for on-going maintenance.
Sports therapy utilizes deep tissue, specialized stretching, neuromuscular and myofascial release techniques to de-activate trigger points, increase range of motion, and soften muscle tissue.
Some of the key benefits are:
- Enhanced performance
- Increased flexibility and range of motion
- Expedited recovery from injury
- Removal of lactic acid build up from exercise
- Helps prevent injury
- Faster workout recovery
Many athletes find that weekly massage gives them the best benefits. However, getting a sports massage at least once per month can have lasting results that aid in performance and recovery.
