Please note that our massage treatments are currently not available.

You don’t have to be an athlete to benefit from a sports massage. Our sports therapy class runs on Wednesday afternoons and Friday mornings and offers pre-event treatments, post-event careor maintenance massages.

When you book for your first massage treatment, you will have an initial consultation to determine the type of treatment you will need.

Pre-event sports massages can be given 12 to 4 hours preceding an event to improve performance and help prevent injuries. It is used as a supplement to an athlete’s warm-up to enhance circulation and reduce excess muscle tension prior to competition. It focuses on warming up the major musclesto be used and getting the athlete in a good mental state for competition. It also improves tissue pliability, readying the athlete for top performance.

Post-event sports massage can be given after an event and is mainly concerned with recovery. It is geared toward reducing muscle spasms and metabolic build-up that occur with vigorous exercise. Recovery after competition involves not only tissue normalization and repair but also general relaxation and mental calming.

A maintenance massageis an ongoing treatment which may be required for rehabilitation from injury, to avoid further injury, or to give a sense of general wellbeing.
