Sports massage applies massage and massage techniques to promote the health and well being of athletes, those who are active in fitness and others whose daily activity is strenuous and physical.
We help enhance athletic performance through various techniques that involve knowledge in musculo-skeletal anatomy and the bio-mechanics of activities including fitness and sports. With this understanding we are able to plan sessions and locate areas of stress and apply palpitation levels appropriately for the massage to met the needs of the client.
