Sports massage therapy utilizes special massage therapy techniques that help athletes and active people prepare and recover from strenuous activities. You don’t have to be a professional athlete to get a sports massage. Sports massage therapy treats various kinds of issues familiar to many different types of athletes. Many of our patients are cyclists, runners, swimmers, moms, dads, child athletes, football players, soccer stars, MMA fighters, skiers, snowboarders, hikers, windsurfers, and wake-borders. We’ve even helped stunt men and women with issues related to their profession. Sports massage was originally developed to help professional athletes, but has been expanded to include athletes of all skill levels. It helps athletes prepare their bodies for optimal performance, recover from their events, and get the most out of training. Sports massage therapy focuses on prevention with an emphasis on healing sports related injuries to the muscles and tendons.

Sports Massage Therapy Can:
Professional and amateur athletes all over the Portland metro area trust us to help them perform their best. We provide four main types of sports massage therapies. These massage services include pre-event sports massage, post-event sports massage, restorative sports massage and rehabilitation sports massage. Pre-event sports massages are usually performed 15-30 minutes before the event and stimulate the areas of the body that will be exerted the most. Post-event sports massages are typically performed 1-4 hours after an event in order to help release toxins, normalize body tissue and avoid cramping as muscles tighten once the event is complete. Restorative sports massages are usually administered during training to help professional athletes train harder while helping to avoid injury. Rehabilitation sports massages focus on returning athletes to full health and alleviating pain from injury. Our professional sports massage experience will help keep your body in top shape so you can be successful in your athletic events.
