Sports Massage, Cupping and Kinesiology Taping

What Is Sports Massage?

Sports massage focuses on preventing and treating injuries, improving flexibility and performance, and speeding up recovery. It uses techniques like deep tissue work, muscle energy techniques, myofascial release, stretching, and mobilization to address the demands of physical activity and sports. These techniques reduce muscle tension and pain, improve range of motion, enhance blood circulation and lymphatic flow, and ease discomfort.

Sports massage can involve the entire body, including the legs, arms, joints, and neck, or it can target specific muscle groups that the individual or athlete uses frequently or finds painful. Overall, sports massage aids in the recovery of athletes, reduces muscle soreness after intense training or competition, and promotes faster return to physical activity.

What to Expect of Your Sports Massage at Mindlybody?

At Mindlybody, our massages are conducted in a quiet, private room, ensuring your privacy is respected at all times. Additionally, I prioritize making you feel comfortable and regularly check your pain threshold to ensure the massage is effective with appropriate pressure.

Please wear comfortable shorts and a sports bra, and you will be covered with towels or sheets during the massage. Hygiene standards are of utmost importance to us, with the rooms, linens, and massage bed disinfected using gentle cleansing products after each client.

We use top-quality lotions that are paraben-free, perfume-free, and suitable for sensitive skin and allergies. Upon booking, I will provide you with a health waiver to accurately prepare for your treatment. You can note any allergies, preferences for the therapist (myself), and health conditions or considerations you would like me to take into account.
