Sports Massage encompasses several techniques, designed for the three aspects of an athletic training regimen, pre-event, post-event & maintenance. Most athletic activity involves the repetitive use of certain muscle groups that can result in muscle imbalance & compensatory patterns. Sport massage prepares the body for physical activity, helps prevent injuries, and keeps it in optimal condition.
Pre-event - prepares the body for activity by warming up and stretching soft tissue. This increases flexibility & range of motion by enhancing performance & aiding in injury prevention.
Post event - assists in removal of metabolic buildup helping to alleviate muscle tension, soreness, cramping & reduces recovery time.
Maintenance - focuses on strained and fatigued muscles from over-exertion. Specifically designed massage promotes flexibility, resets nerve signals to muscles, alleviating possible structural imbalances & compensation and increases nutrient-rich blood flow necessary for healthy muscle tone. Incorporating sports massage to your routine minimizes recovery time between workouts allowing for more training sessions, enhancing physical performance.
Deep Tissue Massage releases chronic patterns of tension points in muscle tissue, tendons or fascia using medium to heavier pressure on contracted areas.
Therapeutic massage is the use of several deeper techniques for when more than one soft tissue issue is being address in the same session. Can consist of but not limited to Deep Tissue, Connective Tissue Release, Myofascial Release, Trigger Point therapy and Sports massage.
Connective Tissue (Fascia) Release is a form of intense, deep application that assists in releasing fascia restrictions. Fascia, a form of connective tissue, is a continuous, thin sheath that surrounds and provides structural support and protection for muscles, bones, nerves & organs. Restricted fascia can decrease flexibility and range of movement and create muscle compensation & weakness. The pressure applied by the therapist can be more intense and massage oil or lotion is not typically used. CTR helps alleviate chronic muscle tension and increases range of motion by restoring the length & flexibility of the fascia.
Myofascial Release frees adhesive bonds between fascia, muscles, tendons & bones. The fascia is manipulated, directly or indirectly, which allows the connective tissue fibers to reorganize themselves in a more flexible, functional fashion. Assists in eliminating pain, increases range of motion & integrates structural balance.
Trigger Point Therapy is used to dissipate small hypoxic points within a muscle and surrounding tissue that presents local or referred pain. Deeper, concentrated pressure to tender areas breaks the cycle of spasm and pain.
Swedish Massage is a system of long strokes, kneading and friction on the superficial layers of muscles, combined with active and passive movements of the joints. Used to warm tissue & promote general relaxation.
Pregnancy Massage is used to ease or alleviate the aches, tension & fatigue associated with the changes of pregnancy. This massage is most beneficial for women in their second and third trimester.
