Sports massage was originally developed to help athletes prepare their bodies for optimal performance, recover after a big event, or function well during training. Sports massage emphasizes prevention and healing of injuries to the muscles and tendons.

But you don't have to be in the Olympics to benefit from sports massage. Sports massage is also good for people with injuries, chronic pain or restricted range of motion. The massage therapist generally concentrates on a specific problem area.

There are four types of sports massages:

-Pre-event sports massage -- a short, stimulating massage before a event. It is directed toward the parts of the body that will be involved in the exertion.

-Post-event sports massage -- given within an hour or two of the event, to normalize the body's tissues.

-Restorative sports massage -- given during training to allow the athlete to train harder and with less injury.

-Rehabilitative sports massage -- aimed at alleviating pain due to injury and returning the body to health. 



 Relaxation massage is essentially the same as a gentle Swedish massage that uses smooth, gliding strokes. The primary purpose will be to help you relax, and the massage therapist will probably move at a slower pace and use light pressure.

During a relaxation massage there is less emphasis on working out serious adhesion or knots in the muscle tissue and the therapist won't push your pain limits in order to get the muscle to release. Sometimes people even fall asleep during a relaxation massage.

There are still substantial health benefits to a relaxation massage, including calming the nervous system, promoting a sense of well-being, improving blood circulation and stimulating the body's lymphatic system, which carries away waste products.

These treatments are geared for all types of people from the sporty to the stressed out student studying for exams to individual concerned with their well-being.  So come and experience an invigorating or relaxing treatment. Your body will thank you for it.
