An athlete benefits from massage while training for an event, during recovery after athletic activity, and in the case of injury. Sports Massage focuses on specific muscles used by the athlete to enhance performance in his or her chosen sport. A program of Sports Massage can provide injury rehabilitation, enhance athletic endurance, decrease chances of getting injured, and shorten recovery times after athletic activity. At Sagewood Wellness Center, I offer programs for all types, from the enthusiast and weekend warrior to the extreme athlete. My integrated approach utilizes Neuromuscular Therapy (a specialized soft tissue treatment), targeted stretching and self care to eliminate the causes of most muscular aches and pains.
Sports Massage and Neuromuscular Therapy can be part of a comprehensive program, complementing other health care approaches.
