How sports massage can heal your injury?

If you are dealing with an injury that is impairing your performance in your sport, our highly experienced massage therapists can work with you to relieve pain to that area, as well as increase blood flow and improve mobility. In addition, just like any massage, a sports massage is also great to help you relax your whole body and get rid of unconscious tension in the body. With less pain and no more hidden muscle knots, you’ll be good to go.

Other ways that sports massages can benefit athletes are less obvious, but no less effective. Studies have shown that massage therapy improves not only your mood, but also your mental clarity and attentiveness, both vital components to great athletic performance. In addition, massage therapy can also literally give you more energy–one study by McMaster University found that massage therapy increases the production of mitochondria, which are the cellular powerhouses that convert nutrients into useful energy. Having more mitochondria also means that your body will use oxygen more efficiently, providing an additional edge in competition.
