Sports massage is a type of massage therapy that uses a combination of techniques to treat problems and injuries created by involvement in rigorous physical activities. Passive stretching and range of motion are also utilized throughout the session. Regular sports massage can reduce the chance of injury through proper stretching and event preparation as well as through deep tissue massage. It can also shorten recovery time between workouts.
“Melissa has been my massage therapist for the past eight months. I compete regularly in endurance events, marathons, triathlons, 100km/100 mile bike races, etc..., so I've had my share of massage therapists, but none even remotely as good as Melissa. Her knowledge of the human anatomy, competence, and professionalism far exceed that of any massage therapist that I've worked with, and I would go so far as saying that it would be difficult to find a better therapist anywhere. I can honestly say that my body would be much worse off without Melissa's help and guidance, not to mention her strong fingers. On a personal level, Melissa is a solid individual, dependable, and courteous. Bottom line: Melissa is a great massage therapist, an even better person.” Tom Deveans
