What is Sports Massage Therapy?

Sports Massage Therapy is a preventative therapy and treatment option targeting athletes and exercise enthusiasts.

Sports Massage Therapy focuses on tissue and muscle health, along with balance, proper posture, range of motion, and even more. The type of sport or exercises a patient is involved in will determine the treatment program, which should target muscles that may be stressed and other parts of the body prone to injury.

Why should I get Sports Massage Therapy?

Sports Massage Therapy can help reduce injuries and increase performance by utilizing different soft tissue techniques. These techniques can increase range of motion and/or flexibility, speed up recovery by increasing local circulation and reducing inflammation and help with rehabilitation of sports related injuries. If you have an event or competition coming up, we can help get you there feeling great! Book a Sports Massage for a pre-event or a post-event treatment for preparation and/or recovery.

I've had about four 2-hour appointments with Sue. I'm always amazed at the knowledge and experience she brings to bear on all of my physical issues. Always helpful and teaches me new things during each visit, like how to stretch to avoid sciatic issues. Friendly, skilled, and knowledgeable - highly recommended.read more

Sue is the best massage therapist I have every had. She had great energy, does aromatherapy, and knows the body - she is a true pro. I go in with a headache and walk out without one - it's a miracle! The price and quality cannot be beat. I have been seeing Sue for 3+ years once a month with a fancy spa massage here and there - always disappointed with the fancy spas and wished I had spent that time at Loosen Up instead.read more

I love Sue! She is the best! Her massage therapy is amazing, very professional, nice office! Very accommodating and friendly service. I would recommend her to anybody who is needing a great massage, she focuses on medical massage as much as muscle-solving deep tissue massages. My back is feeling much better.
