Athletic Improvement

An athletic, commonly known as Sports Massage Therapy, is geared toward athletes, from top-of-class professionals to weekend enthusiasts. The specifics of a sports massage therapy session are geared towards the athlete’s sport of choice, and typically focus on a particular sports-related trouble such as a shoulder or a knee.

Certain aspects of sports massage therapy are gaining in popularity as augmenting components of a well-balanced training regimen.

Sports massage therapy is also used to enhance pre-event preparation & performance as well as to aid in recovery time for maximum performance during training or after an event. Specially tailored sport massage therapy regimens encourage flexibility, discourage fatigue, improve endurance, prevent injuries and prepare athletes to compete at an optimal maximum performance threshold.

Deep Tissue / Trigger Point

A deep tissue / trigger point release massage is similar to a Swedish massage but is utilized to focus on muscle target knots & release/relieve chronic muscle tension. Additional benefits of trigger point massages include the reduction of inflammation as well as to help eliminate scar tissue associated with muscle injury.

The focus of a trigger point massage is on the deepest layers of muscle tissue and tendons. Read more


Myofascial Release

The myofascial release approach of massage therapy is a soft tissue therapy used to treat somatic dysfunction and the resulting pain / restriction of motion. The process uses palpatory feedback to achieve the maximum release of myofascial tissues. The approach is successful by relaxing contracted muscles, increasing circulation and lymphatic drainage and stimulating the stretch reflex of muscles and overlying fascia (the protective layer surrounding muscles, bones and joints).

Somatic Cranial

Somatic Cranial Work, or craniosacral therapy, was developed from the osteopathic field. Cranial work is done with the client fully clothed, lying on the massage table.

The core of this therapy involves the therapist using their hands to sense the flow of craniosacral fluid, which has a regular flow from head to tailbone (sacrum). By following the movement patterns of the area being treated, the client's body itself will begin to unlock and unwind the muscle spasms. Anywhere from one to six sessions is a rule of thumb for most adults. Read more
