Join The Forerunners Of Sports With Massage For The Winning Edge

Therapeutic, hands-on massage has long been recognized for its ability to increase circulation, relax muscle spasm, relieve tension, enhance muscle tone and increase range of motion... to list but a few of the benefits. Sports massage was originally developed for the athletic competitor and considers anything less than maximum performance to be a problem! Specifically, the science is based on the ideas that 1) prevention is better than correction, and 2) treat the cause and not just the symptoms! Massage therapy is effective because it releases spasms, increases blood supply to the tissues, breaks up knotted muscle fibers. helps lessen inflammation, and hastens elimination of lactic acid. Massage therapy administered before an event can loosen and warm muscles, preparing them for heavy use. This can help prevent injury, improve performance, and maximize endurance. Massage therapy administered after an event relieves muscle pain, prevents stiffness, and lessens recovery time.
