Those who spend time playing sports or living an active lifestyle may know what it’s like to sustain an injury from sports or outdoor activities.
A sports massage at Petra’s Massage Therapy and Weight Loss Clinic could be just what’s needed. A sports massage is a type of massage generally used on athletes. This massage is great for relieving sore muscles, easing an injury obtained from strenuous activity or as a way to unwind before an activity.
Aromatherapy enhances the experience and is available to add to all massage services.
There are several techniques utilized during a sports massage. These may include deep tissue, shiatsu, compression, kneading or longitudinal gliding. If there is a certain technique that you would like to have used or want to avoid, we can accommodate these requests before the massage begins.
