sports massage

Our Sports Massage consists of deep pressure applied with elbows and thumbs or may also be applied with the broad plane of the feet "Ashiatsu style" to target muscle tension, constrictions in the tissue and to target those pesky "knots" that limit the range of motion of the athlete. Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation or "PNF stretching" for short, is an advanced form of flexibility training that we incorporate into our Sports Massage sessions. PNF involves stretching and contracting the muscle group that is being focused on.

 

 

 

How To Prepare For Your Massage

  • Drink plenty of water before and after your massage

  • Come in feeling comfortable – eat healthfully on the day of your appointment
  • Arrive ten minutes early, so you have time to relax and discuss with your independent professional massage therapist any goals you have for the session (for example, greater flexibility, less tension, headache relief) and specify areas you’d like to focus on.
  • Let your therapist know about any medical conditions, or anything you feel is important to the session, and feel free to ask questions.
