Sports massage incorporates a wide variety of techniques designed to address the specific needs of athletes.

These include vigorous manipulation and assisted stretching to warm the muscles in preparation for activity as well as gentle manipulation to reduce muscle spasm and increase circulation following exertion. In the event of an injury focused massage techniques are used to reduce swelling, speed healing and inhibit the formation of scar tissue. Each therapist has specific modalities and approaches they use to address sports related concerns.
