Pain & Stress Relief
DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE
Deep tissue massage focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissues using moderate to deep pressure. This treatment can make an enormous difference to your physical function and mobility. Sports massage can be done pre, during or post-event. It prepares the athletes body for maximum output, prevents injury and drains lactic acid build up.
This treatment leaves clients feeling relaxed and renewed. The primary purpose of a relaxation massage is to help you relax using techniques at a slower pace with lighter pressure. With a relaxation massage there is less emphasis on working out knots and more on resetting your pararsympathethic nervous system to decrease stress and tension.

Joints can be mobilized if they aren't functioning properly. When properly administered, these techniques will increase synovial fluid to the joint and decrease pain. When combined with massage therapy to the muscles, tendons and ligaments, joint mobilizations can improve range of motion and prevent further restrictions within the joint itself.
This therapy involves decreasing trigger points (knots) in your muscles that may cause local pain or referred pain to other parts of your body. It can be an uncomfortable treatment, but your massage therapist will work within your pain tolerance.
Specialized tape is used to add additional support to joints, tendons, ligaments and muscles. This prevents further injury and reduces pain.
Stretching and strengthening exercises are given to each client after treatment to help them improve function, range of motion, and flexibility. This will create a better balance between tight and weak areas of the body. These exercises can be performed at home in between massage treatments for best results.
