Practitioners: Beverley, Sam, Lindsay C., Lindsay S., Meaghan, Curtis, Sarah, Robert, Shannon

Best suited for: elite athletes and weekend warriors

Sports Massage Therapy focuses on working with the muscles most used during your chosen sport, as well as trying to prevent muscle imbalances that can cause or increase the chance of injury.

Sports Massage is not necessarily a specific technique or style of Massage Therapy, but rather a term often used as explanation of treatment when therapists are working with athletes.

For example, a Registered Massage Therapist working with a skier would employ largely different techniques and strategies than if they were working with a swimmer.

Sports Massage is usually divided into pre-event and post-event therapy. Depending on your sport and any prior injuries or conditions you may be working through, massage may be needed to elongate short and fatigued muscles, or used to prepare the joint proprioceptors prior to an event. And don’t forget, there’s always plenty of off-season work to be done in order to maintain tissue health for the upcoming year!

Remember to inform your therapist if you are planning to be ACTIVE on the day of a massage treatment.
