Sports Massage can be beneficial for any level of athletic activity.
There are different techniques and approaches that are geared to different needs.
Sports massage can not only help you to recover from injury more quickly, but it can also help to prevent injury from occurring in the first place. Massage therapy should never be used in the place of proper medical care, but can be in great partnership with a physician's care or physical therapy, with the healthcare provider's consent.
Optimum Massage can provide massage therapy for clients looking for pre-event care as well as post-event care. She can also help clients with general maintenance between events.
Teens and Tweens can also benefit from routine massage therapy, especially when they are active in sports. There can be a lot of pressure to succeed at this age and their bodies can be at risk of injury.
