Sports Massage Therapy

Sports Massage Therapy prolongs your participation in sports by helping to prevent injury, reduce pains and swelling in your body, relax your mind, increase your flexibility, and dramatically improve your 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.

  • Pre-event provides muscle warm-up, stretching and range of motion techniques which reduce the probability of injury, prepares the athlete physically and psychologically for the upcoming challenges of competition 
  • Post-event calms the nervous system, balances blood and lymphatic flow throughout the body, reduces swelling and increases flexibility in muscles and joints 
  • Injury recovery time and soreness are reduced when metabolic waste is flushed out, muscles are returned to full resting length, and joints can move painlessly throughout their full range of motion.
  • 30 and 60 minute sessions only.
     

Lymphatic Drainage Massage

Detoxifying, wellness, relaxaing

  • Activates lymph function and circulation, enhances immune system, induces relaxation, reduces pain, scar tissue, wrinkles and swelling.
  • Gentle manual maneuvers increase lymph flow up to 30% faster than normal. 
  • Absorbs excess fluid, toxins and foreign substances from the spaces around the cells. 
  • Cleans connective tissue (blood) by removing cell debris in acute injury conditions.
  • Recovers and returns substances to the blood circulation, usually after being processed by lymph nodes. 
  • Transports immune cells and hormones throughout the body 
  • Helps generate immune cells in the lymph nodes
  • 30 and 60 minute sessions only.

 

Foot Reflexology

Foot Reflexology relieves stress and tension, improves blood supply, promotes the unblocking of nerve impulses, helps all body systems achieve balance.

  • Reflex areas in the feet correspond to all organs, glands, and parts of the body 
  • All body systems lie along ten corresponding ‘zones’ that run the entire length of the body (from head to toe) 
  • Unique thumb and finger techniques applied to the bottom, top and sides of the feet ‘normalize’ all organs, glands, and body systems along these zones.

According to reflexology, every part of the human body is mapped into your feet. Reflexology treatments have been found to be highly effective for conditions such as allergies, headaches, and depression.
