Our licensed massage therapists utilize the following massage therapies:
Soft Tissue Massage
This form of massage therapy uses movement and pressure that reduces swelling and inflammation of the skin, tendons, ligaments, and fascia.
Deep Tissue Massage
Unlike soft tissue massaging, deep tissue massaging uses a different technique to break up problems in the deeper layers of the muscles, tendons, fascia, and connective tissues. Commonly, deep tissue massages are used on the lower neck, back, or shoulders, helping to promote blood flow to the areas and improve healing.
Sports Massage Therapy
This kind of massage therapy is used on a variety of sports players and focuses on a specific part of the athlete’s body. Usually, this is a body part that the person overuses, such as the arm or elbow (for athletes who perform throwing motions). A sports massage can help an athlete to improve his/her performance by reducing fatigue, swelling, or pain in the area. The therapy can also reduce swelling, improve aches, and speed up the healing process.
