Deep Tissue Sports Massage is massage therapy technique that focuses on reaching and releasing deeply held chronic patterns of contracted muscles in the body (which cause many symptoms and problems). Deep tissue massage relieves accumulated stress causing muscle tension in the body. When this tension builds up athletes can experience a restricted range of motion creating issues like not being able to properly rotate the body.
Deep Tissue Sports Massage Method
Deep tissue sports massage elongates shortened muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia and allows them to return to a normal state by allowing blood, lymph and nerve transmission to flow through the area involved. Deep tissue massage increases blood circulation and restores physical and chemical balance which makes you feel healthier, happier and more energetic. Deep Tissue Massage can bring relief to low back pain, neck pain, osteoarthritis, carpel tunnel, knee problems, slipped discs, hand numbness, headaches, hidden symptoms of scar tissue damage.
Our deep tissue sports massage gets to the root of your muscle aches, helping to remove knots and stimulates circulation. Focused pressure in the muscles decreases soreness and stiffness leaving the body rejuvenated. When muscles can become tight, restricted, and painful due to rigorous athletic training, competitive intensity, and repetitive daily use at work deep tissue sports massage will provide relief. Deep tissue sports massage is effective at relieving tension in on-going problem areas.
Deep Tissue Sports Massage Technique
We begin with a general warm up of the afflicted areas using Swedish techniques. Then, using a combination of deep massage and neuromuscular therapy we isolate the problem areas, the source of the muscle tension and chronic pain, and then focus our work there.
For the athlete this combination works well to soothe and alleviate the effects of hard training and competition. We treat common sports injuries and problems including shoulder girdle tightness, IT Band, knee pain due to quadriceps tension, plantar facitus, “shin splints,” tight calves & hamstrings, general leg stiffness, cramping, and other ailments common to the athlete.
We address chronic pain from repetitive overuse conditions as well. Many painful issues such as neck and shoulder pain, low back pain, chronic headaches due to muscle tension, carpal tunnel syndrome, and tempromandibular dysfunction, (TMJ), are effectively treated.
Deep Tissue Sports Massage Results
As overused and/or injured tissue relaxes, clients experience improvement in muscle flexibility, increase in range of motion, return of power and speed to afflicted areas, easing of tendonitis, and shortened recovery time. Many have found that keeping muscles loose and healthy using massage helps in preventing future injuries.
At the end of the deep tissue sports massage session you will feel relaxed, loose, energetic and joyful.
