(OUR BEST SELLER)

The Sports Massage is based on the Swedish techniques and it is a form of deep tissue massage.

Sports massage uses certain soft tissue techniques to mobilise and manipulate muscles. Its main purpose is to enhance repair, relieve pain, prevent an injury or maintain health. It is ideal for acute injuries like ligament sprain or muscle tear but also for chronic, long-lasting neck or back problems.

Initially developed to help athletes prevent or treat sports injuries, Sports Massage focuses on soft and connective tissue injuries or stress caused by repetitive activities.

When you think about it, athletes aren’t the only people engaging in repetitive activities. Everyday people do, too – from sitting in a desk chair typing on a keyboard to bagging groceries to cutting hair – these repetitive activities can result in pain and even injury.

Almost everyone knows the benefits Massage Therapy provides for relieving stress, sore muscles, anxiety and even depression.

Each Sports Massage session at Massage Sense is tailored to the individual’s needs.

If you want to experience the deep tissue massage benefits you’ve been dreaming about; if you’d like to address a problematic area of tension, or if you’d like to increase your flexibility and performance abilities make sure to communicate that to our therapists.

 

Sports Massage Benefits:

 Keep in mind that you may need more than a few sessions to experience relief.

Some people enjoy the benefits of a monthly deep tissue massage, while others will need weekly care to see improvements. Talk with your massage therapist to determine what’s best for you.

It’s important to be realistic about what one deep tissue massage can achieve. Many people ask for more pressure, thinking that if the therapist just pushes hard enough, they can get rid of all their knots in an hour. This just won’t happen.

Side Effects / Is Sports Massage for me?

 It’s not unusual to have some lingering soreness for a few days following a deep tissue massage. Using a heating pad or a cold pack wrapped in a towel may help to relieve soreness.

Though massage therapy is generally safe, deep tissue massage uses very firm pressure and may not be safe for everyone.

Speak to your doctor before having a deep tissue massage if you:

  • have a history of blood clots or a clotting disorder
  • are taking blood thinners
  • have a bleeding disorder
  • have cancer or are undergoing cancer treatment, such as chemotherapy or radiation

Anyone with osteoporosis or cancer that’s spread to the bones should avoid deep tissue massage as the firm pressure used may cause a fracture.

You should also hold off on deep tissue massages if you’re pregnant. (We offer Specialized PregnancyMassage)

If you have an open wound or skin infection of any kind, you’ll need to reschedule to avoid developing a new infection or making an existing one worse.

Disclaimer

Do not use massage therapy to replace your regular medical care or as a reason to postpone seeing a health care provider about a medical problem.

If you have a medical condition and are unsure whether massage therapy would be appropriate for you, discuss your concerns with your health care provider. You might also look for published research articles on massage therapy for your condition.

Reviews

Medical support of a high level is very important, especially for an athlete. I myself am a foil fencer (31), fencing is a very asymmetrical sport and therefore prone to injury. Due to the amount of training and the intensity of the tournaments fast recuperation is very important as well as staying injury free. I have been working with many doctors, chiropractors, physical therapists and masseurs/masseusses. The last 4 years I have been lucky enough to get my massages at Massage Sense. Most of my treatments were with Zuzana. During this time period I have noticed a big improvement in my physique and results. In this time period I have won multiple National championship titles and other prestigious international tournaments. Now I have started a new program in preparation for the summer Olympics 2016 in Rio de Janeiro. Therefore I am planning to keep getting treatments at Massage Sense and I would advice any other person given the opportunity to do the same.

I have chronic back and neck problems. The team at massage sense are very well trained. They understand the problems find the issues and specifically treat them - this is not the sort of superficial massage so often offered. I am a very happy customer.

The moment I have visited Massage Sense I have immediately felt comfortable and welcomed by very friendly and professional staff. I have been cared for immensely during the session. The therapist carefully listen to all your complaints and responded with a highly professional and greatly effective treatment to relax me and tackle the problem areas. You get to decide if you need quiet during the session or if you are up for comfortable conversation. The therapist can accommodate either in a very friendly but at the same time professional manner. They checks in with you, asks for feedback and are very responsive in their methods of individualizing the care to the particular patient needs. I highly recommend visiting Massage Sense and experiencing the massage therapy on a totally different level then you have known before.
