At Massage Extraordinaire we specialize in sports massage and deep tissue massage. We have worked with many athletes from the NFL, NBA, MLB, pro-soccer, tennis, rugby, sailing, golf and arena football. Sports massage is not just for the professionals though. The benefits of this type of massage are good for athletes of every kind from professionals to weekend warriors and everyone in between.
The focus of this type of massage will be specific to the athlete’s sport of choice. Paying attention to areas of the body that are overused and stressed from repetitive and often aggressive movements help the body recover faster. Recovery is key to pain relief, injury prevention and peak performance.
There are basically four types of sports massage:
Pre-event: Usually a more stimulating massage that is directed toward the area of the body that will be involved in the sport.
Post-event: Is given an hour or two after an event to help normalize the body and help with faster recovery.
