Sports Massage Therapists that are specializing in sports massage are trained to recognize and work with the unique demands that different sports place on the body. They are also trained to stretch your body which will help you to reach your full stretching potential. This helps to maintain your body in top condition, prevent injuries, cure and restore mobility to injured muscle tissue, boost performance and shorten recovery time.
Medical Massage Therapy also includes muscle energy techniques “MET’S” and myofascial release. MET's are used to help reset the muscles back to their normal position. These techniques are known as Positional Muscle Release, Muscle Normalization, and Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF) to name a few. “Myo” refers to the muscle and “fascia” the elastic web of connective tissue that spreads throughout the body and ties it together. Muscles and fascia work together to support your body and facilitate movement.
Myofascial Release is a hands on technique involving the application of stretches and pressure to the fascia and muscles. It relieves tension and pain by releasing and lengthening the fascia, which allows muscles to return to their correct position.
