Sports massage is not just for athletes. Sports massage is for active people.

Regardless of whether you’re a professional triathlete, CrossFitter, or an occasional hiker, sports massage can help you move more freely and efficiently.

Sports massage therapy sessions are customized to support your physical activities and enhance performance in a given sport. Different activities require different muscles and a general Swedish or full-body deep tissue massage may not be the best fit for you. A golfer is going to need a different session than a cyclist or tennis player. Add to that any pre-existing conditions or structural imbalances, and you have the makings for a very specific massage. That requires working with a sports massage therapist that has a thorough understanding of biomechanics and kinesiology.

Sessions often include a variety of methods including myofascial release, deep tissue massage, neuromuscular trigger point therapy, and assisted stretching.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is sports massage therapy?

Sports massage is a type of massage therapy that is used to work on athletes from professionals to weekend warriors alike. Sports massage doesn’t focus on a specific technique but aims to prevent and treat muscular problems arising from sports and exercise. Sports massage may be applied before, during, or after a specific sporting event or activity. Sports massage is targeted to support fitness, reduce the demands of intense exercise on the body, increase the ability to perform a given sport, and enhance and shorten recovery time.

What conditions do you treat?

Most of our sports massage clients come in because they want to achieve peak performance, minimize muscle soreness, or expedite recovery from injury.

Common sports related conditions include delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS), strains, sprains, repetitive motion injury, tendonitis, golfers elbow, tennis elbow, and plantar fasciitis. If you’re curious about whether or not we can help, just ask

How much time should I book?

The short answer is “it depends”. It depends on the nature of your goals, your overall muscle mass, how long it’s been since your last treatment, etc. Longer sessions are generally better because they provide your body time to relax, allowing for deeper work. However, shorter treatments can still be very therapeutic. Most new clients schedule an initial visit of at least an hour. After an initial visit, I can recommend a treatment plan based on my assessment.

How often should I get a sports massage?

Again, the short answer is “it depends”. It depends on your level of activity (frequency and intensity), the nature of your goals, your overall muscle mass, etc. After an initial visit, we can recommend a treatment plan based on our assessment.

Do you accept insurance?

Sorry, but we do not accept health insurance or Medicaid at this time. Please let us know if you need a receipt for reimbursement.

However, there are some instances where you may be able to receive full reimbursement or partial payment assistance through other forms of insurance.
