Sports and remedial massage is a great tool to help treat and soothe low level injuries and tired muscles related to activity and exercise. Our team of highly trained practitioners can offer a variety of techniques designed to help prevent injuries occurring or to assist in the treatment of injury.
Sports or remedial massage is a form of manual therapy which is geared toward participants in sports and athletics primarily but can also be helpful to all. It is used to help prevent injuries, to prepare the body for athletic activity and maintain it in optimal condition, and to help people recover from workouts and injuries. Pure Sports massage has three basic forms: pre-event massage, post-event massage, and maintenance massage.
Deep tissue massage focuses on the soft tissues that surround the skeletal structure. By that definition it goes beyond the standard ‘holistic’ massage (which is relaxing and normally non-specific) and will focus on specific pain and injury.
Massage stimulates circulation and aids lymphatic drainage promoting faster healing as well as improving overall well-being. Working at both an emotional and neurological level, massage stimulates the brain to release muscle tension and allow the body to relax and restoring balance.
