Sports Massage

Sports Massage is the ideal modality for enhanced performance, improved conditioning, faster recovery, injury prevention and treatment. It can assist athletes and active people in maintaining peak fitness by improving muscle and connective tissue health, tone, symmetry, balance and quality of posture and joint range of movement.

Sports Massage can be applied pre-event, inter-event or post-event; during recovery and maintenance period; or for injury rehabilitation; therefore the techniques used will be very different depending on the intent of the session: i.e. before an event as a warm-up, increasing blood flow, flexibility, and mental clarity; after intense exercise reducing muscle tension and calming the nervous system.


Research has shown that Sports Massage can:

  • Reduce muscle tension

  • Increase flexibility and range of motion

  • Improve soft tissue function

  • Prevent muscle spasms

  • Support recovery after high intensity exercise

  • Increase tissue oxygenation

  • Assist with metabolic waste removal

  • Decrease muscle stiffness, fatigue and swelling after exercise

  • Decrease delayed onset muscle soreness

  • Reduce breathing pattern disorders

  • Enhance athletic performance

  • Prevent injuries with a regular massage program

  • Promote relaxation and focus
