An effective maintenance massage program is based on our massage
therapist's expert understanding of anatomy and kinesiology (movement of
muscles), combined with an in-depth knowledge of which muscles are used
in a given sport and which muscles are likely candidates for stress and injury.
By zeroing in on particular muscle groups and working specific tissues, our
sports massage therapist help the athlete maintain or improve range of motion and muscle flexibility. The overall objective of our maintenance program is to help the athlete reach optimal performance through injury-free training.
Pre- and post-event massage therapyare tailored for distinct purposes. Pre-event massage is used as a supplement to an athlete’s warm-up to enhance circulation and reduce excess muscle and mental tension prior to competition. It also improves tissue pliability, readying the athlete for top performance.
