Massage Therapy for Athletes

Massage is a wonderful addition to the life of any athlete.

By receiving regular massages any athlete will improve their performance and recovery time. Negative tension in the muscles often limits their function leading to less flexibility, strength and endurance. This is because the tension in the muscles reduces the amount of nutrients and oxygen getting to each muscle and slows the rate at which lactic acid is flushed out of the muscles after use. Not an ideal situation for any one, especially an athlete in competition.

By treating someone after an athletic event we can help the body to flush out the lactic acid that they accumulated during the event and lessen their recovery time.

This means less soreness and stiffness and is done using special gliding and pressing techniques. We will assess each person's general body tension and provide some relief to help improve function.

While this is a great way to help with recovery after a physical exertion, athletes benefit much more from treatment starting months before the big event.

In such treatments we find out where the cause of a person's tension comes from and help the body to reduce tension and improve the function in all the muscles.

We want every athlete to be functioning at their best!
