Massage has been a therapeutic modality in all cultures since early civilization and has had a long tradition of use in the sporting context. However, there has been a paucity of scientific evidence of the physiological, psychological and therapeutic effects of commonly used massage techniques. Sports Deep Tissue massage encompass most of the techniques that are sometimes associated with Deep Tissue massage therapy. A simple definition of Sport Therapy Deep Tissue massage might be: the understanding of the layers of the body, and the ability to work with tissue in these layers to relax, lengthen, and release holding patterns in the most effective and energy efficient way possible within the client's parameters of comfort. We strive to use a high degree of sensitivity, patience, and anatomical knowledge to achieve results. Sports massage uses these and other tools and techniques to work with physically active people - whether those physical demands come from sports, the workplace, or recreational activities - to promote greater ease and range of movement, prevent injury, speed recovery, and minimize the effects of overuse. We work with clients and focus on the detailed musculoskeletal anatomy necessary to do this more specific, goal-oriented bodywork, and the pathology of common injuries.
