Therapeutic Sports Massage
Just like deep tissue massage, therapeutic sports massage focuses on treating the soft tissue and the areas most associated with aches and pains related to recreational activities. This type of massage can significantly reduce muscle stiffness, improving heart rate and blood pressure. For athletes who want to prepare their bodies for optimal performance, sports massage can make the critical difference.
From professional tennis players & golfers – to avid runners & gym buffs, therapeutic sports massage emphasizes prevention and healing of injured tendons and muscles—and prepares all athletes for training and recovery. But you don’t have to be an athlete to benefit from sports massage. For those who experience chronic pain or restricted range of motion associated with an injury, this type of massage can also decrease these symptoms.
