Although geared towards athletes, Sports Massage may be of benefit to you. Sports massage therapy is a form of deep tissue massage that often also incorporates Myofascial techniques to assist in correcting imbalances and problems in the muscles, tendons, ligaments, and in connective tissues. The therapy works most of the muscle groups in the body but is concentrated on areas of particular concern. Our Sports massage therapists are trained and experienced in correcting specific problems and providing relief from muscle and joint injuries. Sports massage is an excellent recovery aid between workouts and promotes flexibility, increases endurance, and helps prevent further injuries. It also helps reduce fatigue and recovery time after injury. Compared to other massage techniques, one of the main unique benefits of sports massage is its increased ability to target the muscle-tendon junctions.
Swedish massage is unquestionably one of the most recognized and popular massages techniques offered. During a Swedish massage, your therapist will first apply massage oil or lotion to your body and then employ long gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart. These purposeful movements help to warm your muscle tissue, release tension, and release those tight “knots” you may have been experiencing in your neck, shoulders, or back. Your therapist may also incorporate techniques, for example, circular pressure applied hands and palms, a firm kneading of the muscles, a percussion-like tapping, and stretching of the joints and muscles.
Hot stone massage therapy not only feels amazingly relaxing, it is known to provide a host of other benefits.. The use of hot stones allows you to achieve a deeper level of relaxation as the stones serve as a grounding force that makes it difficult to stay stressed very long. Hot stone massage has a calming effect that relieves pain, reduces stress and promotes deep relaxation. During you massage your therapist will place smooth, water-heated stones at key points along your body. By combining this element with other massage techniques you will receive an experience that provides the most healing. With regular hot stone massage sessions, you will begin to notice less pain and an improved ability for your body to handle stress. Hot stone massage melts away muscle tension as a result of heat.

The desired result is a relaxation of muscle tension that accompanies a host of other benefits including: Improved circulation, increased metabolism, chronic pain relief, fewer muscle spasms, improved joint flexibility and improved mood.
