Sports Massage & Medical Massage Therapy

Whether you’re enduring the physical hurdles of a medical condition or participating in high-level athletics, you need to stay injury-free and in peak performance. Medical massage therapy and sports massages both aim to speed up recovery by reducing muscle tension and improving blood circulation.

Our service is a combination of advanced massage techniques to improve recovery, enhance performance, and alleviate pain. Whether you’re a dedicated athlete or recovering from a medical condition or injury, we’re here

A Holistic Approach to Recovery

Sports massage therapy and medical massage therapy are about more than relaxation. They’re a strategic combination of several techniques that brings optimal results:

  • Deep Swedish Massage. By delivering powerful strokes that reach the deeper layers of the muscle, this massage promotes better blood circulation and reduces muscle tension.
  • Compression Massage. This therapy applies sustained pressure to specific areas in the body to create a ‘deep hyperemia’ effect, encouraging healing while softening tight muscles.
  • Cross-Fiber Friction Techniques. This method uses specific strokes across the grains of the muscle fibers, assisting in breaking up scar tissue and improving flexibility.

The Benefits of Sports Massage and Medical Massage Therapy

It’s no surprise — athletes have to stay in great condition. But with the physical demands of their sport, injury, tension, and stiffness can creep in. And for those with chronic medical conditions or recovering from injuries, a highly-tailored massage regimen with specialized techniques can aid in recovery and prevent future complications. Here’s how massage can help athletes and non-athletes, alike:

  • Boost Recovery. Encourage faster and more effective muscle recovery from workouts and injuries.
  • Enhance Performance. Boosting flexibility and range of motion, and reducing muscle fatigue can significantly improve an athlete’s performance.
  • Lessen Pain and Tension. Address muscle soreness, tightness, and pain — perfect for anyone and everyone.
  • Increased Injury Prevention. Improve and maintain healthy muscle tissue to reduce the risk of injuries down the road.
  • Improved Blood Flow and Circulation. Good blood circulation ensures that muscle tissues get the nutrients they need for better healing — resulting in better performance.

A Personalized Treatment Plan for Peak Performance

We know that every body is unique and responds to massage therapy differently. At Elements of Life, we personalize every session for better results. Here’s what you can expect during a session:

  • In-Depth Consultation. Let’s chat and work together so we can understand your goals, injury history, training regimen(if applicable), and any other concerns, and needs better.
  • Targeted and Focused Assessment. Based on the consultation, your therapist will assess your posture, muscle tone, and range of motion to create a tailored treatment plan.
  • Personalized Treatment. From the result of your assessment, the therapist will be able to select a combination of techniques and methods that will effectively address any concerns you have.
  • Post-Massage and Recovery Guidance. After your session, we’ll provide you with recommendations for stretching, self-care, and self-recovery techniques for optimal progress toward recovery.
