What Massage Should You Get?

As a male athlete, I know what it’s like to be sore and feel lousy for a few days after a workout. As a massage therapist, I know which techniques help your muscles heal faster and how to stretch and relax your muscles for optimal healing time. Below are the three main types of massages I offer with descriptions of each.  I can use both oils or lotions with most clients preferring oils. If you watch the videos you will have a good idea of how much pressure and which muscles each massage covers.  The videos are a great representation of what you can expect during your massage. 

 

Full Body Sports Massage 

  • Promotes flexibility to decrease risk of injury
  • Improves endurance
  • Reduces post-workout recovery time
  • Offers balance to training regimen

This is my most popular massage as most of my clients are athletes or weight lifters who need muscles worked and stretched. This massage is also very relaxing and works all major muscle groups from deltoids, to glutes, to quads. This massage is by far one of the most beneficial.

Swedish Massage

  • Light to medium pressure
  • Promotes circulation
  • Good for stress-related conditions
  • Great for simple relaxation

This massage is light strokes with long motions.  This is a very relaxing massage.

Deep Tissue Massage

  • Releases muscle tension
  • Good for chronic and overuse injuries

This massage uses deep pressure working muscles that are tight or overused.  This helps to release the tension and stretch the muscle.  Many clients do not like too much pressure during a massage.  If your new to massage it’s best to start with a lighter massage.
