Pre/Post Event Sports Massage:
- Pre-Event Massage – A day or more before an event, deep tissue techniques such as, Neuromuscular Therapy, Myofascial Therapy and therapeutic stretching is done to prepare for competition and to address any particular issues the athlete may have. This is a good time to apply kinesiology tape. Immediately before an athlete competes, brisk, invigorating massage techniques stimulate the muscles and increase blood flow in preparation for activity.
- Post-Event Massage – flushing massages and gentle stretches are applied to assist in the athlete’s recovery.
On-site Seated Massage:
- Enhance your next event, trade show or meeting by offering Chair Massage to your clients, attendees, or staff.
- Increase traffic flow to your venue or booth
- Generate additional initial consultations and increase client base.
Counties Serviced (but not limited to):
