Sports massage helps alleviate pain and prevent such injuries that greatly affect flexibility, mobility, response time, and overall performance in athletic events.
Trigger Point Therapy
Trigger points are an extremely common cause of pain. Trigger points are painful when pressed on. Trigger-point therapy applies pressure to client’s muscles to release these pain-causing points and bring long-lasting pain relief.
Myofascial pain syndrome is a chronic pain disorder caused by sensitivity and tightness in your myofascial tissues. The technique focuses on pain believed to arise from myofascial tissues — the tough membranes that wrap, connect and support your muscles. During myofascial release therapy, the therapist locates myofascial areas that feel stiff and fixed instead of elastic and movable under light manual pressure. These areas, though not always near what feels like the source of pain, are thought to restrict muscle and joint movements, which contributes to widespread muscle pain.
Medical Massage focuses on a particular medical diagnosis as part of the physician’s treatment plan, and can be recommended for a variety of maladies, including carpal tunnel syndrome and migraines.

Medical Massage is part of a larger physical therapy regimen for numerous chronic problems.
