Visit the BodyMend studio in Georgetown and let our Registered Massage Therapist (RMT) enhance your functioning with sports massage.
Sports massage involves deep tissue techniques to enhance blood flow to the soft tissues, optimizing muscular response and performance. Registered Massage Therapists (RMTs) commonly use petrissage (kneading and squeezing) and friction (deep circular motions along the muscle fibers) strokes during sports massage.
RMTs may also assist athletes and sports enthusiasts in warming up and stretching their muscles effectively prior to an event or stretching and relaxing their muscles after an event. Massage used following an event provides benefits for the athlete by relaxing the tense, stressed muscles, and helping to maintain optimal flexibility and functioning.
Massage encourages the flushing out of lactic acid and toxins released during muscle exertion, helping to prevent muscle stiffness and soreness.
