Sports Massage is a type of massage designed for highly active people who engage in athletics. Engaging in sports is harsh on the body and can often lead to injuries in both the short and long term. Sports Massage enhances performance and prolongs a sports career by helping to prevent injury, reduce pains and swelling in the body, relax the mind, increase flexibility, and dramatically improve recovery rates. Sports Massage is also highly effective in aiding the rapid recovery of an athlete from an injury by encouraging greater kinesthetic awareness and in turn promoting the body's natural immune function. Stretching and body mobilization
Myofascial massage is a technique used to treat injuries and discomfort, reducing pain and increasing range of motion. Myofascial massage differs from other types of massage in that it targets the fascia - the membrane surrounding muscles - rather than the muscle itself. Since fascia completely encases every muscle in the body, imbalances in the fascia can have serious effects on your range of motion and comfort level. While other forms of massage can overlook the fascia, myofascial massage focuses specifically on releasing tension in this important membrane.
(often utilized with Deep Tissue Massage)
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep Tissue Massage is a general category of bodywork that focuses on approaches to realign & release the body’s deeper layers of muscles & fascial connective tissue. Session is specifically designed to alleviate chronic muscle tension or injury of the body due to misalignment, repetitive motions, and past lingering issues.Due to the nature of the deep tissue work, open communication during the session is crucial to make sure you don't get too uncomfortable. Keep in mind that soreness is pretty common after the treatment, and that plenty of water should be ingested to aid with the flushing and removal of toxins that will have been released from the deep tissue during the session.

A wonderful ancient tool has become popular in the contemporary world of health care. Cupping therapy is a more modern form of vacuum therapy.
By creating suction and vacuum pressure, cupping is used to soften tight muscles, loosen adhesions and lift connective tissue, bring hydration and blood flow to body tissues, move deep inflammation to the skin surface for release, and drain excess fluids and toxins by opening lymphatic pathways.
Cupping therapy is versatile and can easily be customized to accomplish a wide variety of techniques, from lymphatic drainage to deep tissue release.
RockTape Kinesiology Taping
