Recovery Massage

Pregnancy Massage

has evolved into a therapeutic massage form enabling pregnant women to go to term with fewer of the negative effects from the changes women’s bodies experience.

The following list is some of massage’s benefits during pregnancy:

  • Helps carry away the lactic acid and other cellular waste products that build up causing fatigue.
  • Muscular discomforts, such as cramping, tightening, stiffness, tension, and knots, can be alleviated.
  • Increases local and general blood circulation, which brings more oxygen and nutrients to the cells of both the mother and fetus.
  • By aiding circulation, massage eases the load on mom’s heart and helps to keep her blood pressure in check.
  • Eases the load on mom’s heart while helping to keep blood pressure in check and reducing the potential for life threatening ecclampsia.
  • Can help relieve pre and post partum depression or anxiety.
  • Doctors and Midwives agree that a relaxed mother will have a happier, healthier pregnancy and an easier childbirth experience.

Sports Massage

Sports massage therapists deliver treatments before professional competitions to help improve an athlete’s flexibility and after competitions to alleviate injuries or keep muscles from tightening. They might also work in private practice, health care or athletic facilities where they provide sports massage therapy to everyday clients seeking some of the many benefits of sports massage, such as these:

  • Faster recovery from strenuous workouts
  • Increased flexibility and long range motion
  • Increased blood circulation
  • Reduced muscle spasms and strain
  • Reduced blood pressure and stress
  • Rehabilitation from injuries or chronic pain

Sports massage is designed to enhance athletic performance and recovery. There are three contexts in which sports massage can be useful to an athlete: pre-event, post-event, and injury treatment. Pre-event massage is delivered at the performance site, usually with the athlete fully clothed. Fast-paced and stimulating, it helps to establish blood flow and to warm up muscles. During the massage, the athlete generally focuses on visualizing the upcoming event. Post-event massage is also delivered on site, through the clothes. The intent here is to calm the nervous system and begin the process of flushing toxins and waste products out of the body. Post-event massage can reduce recovery time, enabling an athlete to resume training much sooner than rest alone would allow. When an athlete sustains an injury, skillful massage therapy can often speed and improve the quality of healing.

Injury Rehabilitation

employs a variety of massage techniques to assist people suffering with the ongoing effects of illnesses, diseases, injuries and medical procedures. Injury Rehabilitation may involve; freeing up stiff or frozen joints, refashioning scar tissue or breaking up adhesions in order to promote flexibility and range of motion. This treatment enables your body to heal at an accelerated rate.

Injury Rehabilitation assists with healing by pumping more oxygen and nutrients into tissues and vital organs; improving joint movement, flexibility, strength and function.
