Feeling Off Your Game?
Athletes have a tendency to injure and re-injure themselves in the same area of the body. They push themselves so hard in their sport that they can sometimes forget to take care of their bodies with a restorative approach. Massage therapy can help by using various therapeutic soft tissue techniques combined with passive stretching and mobilizations.
Who Can Benefit From Sport Massage Therapy?
Patients suffering from sprains, strains, shortened muscles, fatigue, and more can benefit from this treatment. Massage therapists can also help with pre and post game treatments to optimize performance.

What Are the Benefits of Massage for an Athlete or Active Individual?
Massage therapy can provide numerous ways to support your active lifestyle, it can:
- increase flexibility to reduce stiffness and soreness
- help you recover from heavy workouts and events
- help rehabilitate injuries
- compliment other therapies such as physiotherapy
As each sport challenges muscles in a different way, the massage therapist must be familiar with not only the sport, but the athlete’s responsibility in the game/event. In doing this the massage therapist is able to tailor the treatment to the individual athlete. Sport massage is beneficial not only leading up to the event in the athlete’s training phase but also in pre/post event phases and during any necessary rehabilitation.
