Sports injuries are one of the reasons athletes stop doing something they love. Sports injury massage focuses on specific areas to overcome the injury and assist in the recovery process. We work with you in a series of sessions to increase range of motion, release injury specific tension and break down dense restrictive fascia.
Scar Tissue Management
Scar tissue management is a customized protocol aimed at breaking down the layers of fascia associated with scars. Our therapist will assess the structure of the scar looking for three major factors: Range of motion, viscosity, and Depth. we use a variety of techniques based on the physical findings. Stationary pressure is used to warm the facial tissue and increase blood flow. As the tissue is warmed light oils are used to help hydrate the skin and stimulate collagen.
Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation
Often referred to as assisted stretching PNF, we customize your stretch by guiding you through your breathing. Muscles that have not been used or are used too often can decrease your range of motion. PNF focuses on enhancing flexibility and releasing ATP that maybe trapped in the muscle tissues. Unlike deep tissue, PNF is a subtle technique that requires patience for maximum results. With each deep breath you will be taken into a deeper more concentrated stretch.
