We specialize in helping young athletes prevent overuse injuries and help speed up the healing process of current injuries.

 

Sports Massage & Infrared Heat Therapy enhance their performance, decrease pain and inflammation associated with repetitive use, and allow these athletes to return to their respective sport more quickly following an injury.

"My son is a high school cross country runner.  He has had to ice his feet and hips and take ibuprofen on a daily basis to make it through the day.  Now that he has started receiving sports massage on a regular basis, he does not have pain everyday.  His performance and flexibility have improved.  He ran his best time after his first treatment. The tight muscles that were restricting his movement are being worked out at each visit. He has an intense training schedule with little rest in between each week.  His body recovers faster now than it did before starting sports massage.  He is continuing his appointments every week for right now until his muscles are healthier and we can "get ahead" of the pain, then we plan to do a maintenance program."

Infrared Heat Therapy

Gently heals, stimulates, and detoxifies the body. The Infrared rays are invisible waves of energy that have the ability to penetrate all layers of the physical body, into the innermost regions of the tissues, muscles and bone, helping the body to heal and recovery following exercise at the cellular level.

Sports Massage

The massage therapist identifies and eliminates conditions in the soft tissue, while helping the athlete to stretch tight muscles that pose a risk of injury.
