Service Description

Sports Massage Sports massage is a systematic manipulation of the soft tissues of the body that focuses on muscles relevant to a particular sport. Runner Paavo Nurmi, known as the "Flying Finn," was one of the early users of sports massage. Nurmi is said to have used sports massage during the 1924 Olympics in Paris where he won five gold medals. Jack Meagher is thought to be the father of sports massage in the United States. Some of the reported benefits of sports massage include: Increased joint range of motion (ROM) Increased flexibility Increased sense of well-being Decreased muscle tension Decreased neurological excitability (nerves more relaxed) Decreased muscle spasms Better sleep How therapeutic massage is different from relaxation massage The massage work in a therapeutic massage may feel deeper than a relaxation massage. You also may experience more tenderness as the therapist works through the tissue. “For that reason, it’s important to let your therapist know if the pressure feels too deep or uncomfortable,” Segall advises. “Don’t be afraid to communicate.” The therapist may use various techniques during your treatment session. Depending on their training, they may incorporate deep-tissue massage, myofascial release, trigger point work, various movement therapies or passive-resistive stretching techniques. 50 minutes $95.00 60 minutes $115.00 80 minutes   $140.00 90 minutes $ 150.00 110 minutes  $190.00
