Optimize Athletic Performance with Sports Massage Therapy

What is a Sports Recovery Massage?

A Sports Recovery Massage is a form of massage therapy widely used by athletes of all skill levels in pre-performance, post-performance, during training, or for rehabilitation.

What techniques are used in a Body Heal Sports Recovery Massage?

Our Sports Recovery Massage utilizes a combination of several different techniques that manipulate specific muscles and tissues affected by training or sports performance. The most common techniques used in sports massage include…

  • Long flushing strokes
  • Trigger point therapy
  • Cupping
  • Friction
  • Kneading
  • Gliding
  • Stretching
  • Percussion
  • Pin and stretch (Myofascial Release)

All of these techniques are used to help athletes achieve maximum performance, prevent injury and pain, and allow for a quicker recovery post-performance.

What are the benefits of a Sports Recovery Massage?

The overall purpose of a Sports Recovery Massage is to help your tissues recover from strenuous activity which helps them to remain in optimal health and helps prevent injury.

Other benefits include…

Improved Circulation:  A Sports Recovery Massage uses compression and flushing techniques to increase blood and fluid flow which maximizes the supply of nutrients and oxygen to the muscles.

Improved Range of Motion: We help to increase range of motion both in the muscles as well as in the joints.  When athletes train hard, it can lead to muscle rigidity which can decrease performance and increase the possibility of injury. Sports recovery massage improves the quality and flexibility of the tissue in and around the musculature that leads to increased power and performance. Athletes can also experience a limitation in range of motion due to joint stiffness.  We use a gentle and effect form of joint pumping to increase the fluidity of the joint. This allows athletes to work more efficiently, intensity and freedom.

Shorter Recovery Time:  As discussed a Sports Recovery Massage increases blood circulation.  This increased circulation of fluid facilitates the body’s natural healing process, removes waste, and improves overall health. This includes inflammation and scar tissue build-up associated with sports performance which also contributes to a quicker, healthier recovery.

Prevents & Heals Injury: By stretching connective tissue and manipulating other soft tissues, sports recovery massage improves circulation and can stimulate the body’s natural healing response which helps to prevent or break down adhesions.

If you are training hard and need recovery or are about to start leveling up your exercise regimen and need to prepare, getting a sports recovery massage can make a big difference between achieving you goals or suffering an injury.

No. We cannot diagnose. Only a doctor can make a diagnosis.

We can and do use orthopedic testing to determine if bodywork is recommended for your issue. If we find that the test we perform is a positive then we may recommend that you go to a medical practitioner for a diagnosis.

Since every one of our therapists is an independent contractor we allow each therapist to decide whether they require credit card information to hold an appointment.

If the therapist does require credit card information to hold the appointment then that therapist will contact you to get that information so that they can put it securely in Square. Your card will not be charged and no amount will be held for the appointment.

If you cancel within 24 hours of the appointment or do not show up for the appointment then half of the price of the session will be charged to the card on file. Thank you for your understanding and please call us with any questions.

Body Heal Therapy is a holistic approach to pain relief. Since the human body moves as a unit, rather than in individual pieces, we often compromise for repetitive patterns and postures with unrelenting tension in other areas that can cause pain. By addressing these patterns, we can go beyond providing temporary help to the area causing discomfort, and instead, treat the root cause with lasting results.
