Vancouver Sports Massage Treatment Clinic
We have a couple of our therapists that have travelled as sports massage therapists with the Canadian Women’s Soccer Team to the 2008 Beijing and 2012 London Olympics. In addition, we have a sports acupuncturist, osteopath and two sports naturopaths to round out your therapeutic team. What ever you are training towards we can help you get there.
RMT’s with post graduate training in Systemic Deep Tissue Therapy®:
We also recommend these three RMTs. They have post-graduate training in deep tissue massage therapy and have experience working with weekend warriors up to elite athletes.
Sports massage has been gaining popularity over the years as athletes and trainers alike are recognizing the benefits. Sports Massage not only enhances sports performance, but also prevents injury and facilitates the rebuilding phase. Sports massage plays a large role in all major athletic competitions, including the Commonwealth and Olympic games.
Whether you are a runner or a swimmer, you can benefit from regular sports massage. Over exercised muscles lose their capacity to release, causing tight or hypertonic muscles. As well, you may see a reduction in your overall flexibility. Experts suggest when muscles are tense, they become deprived of oxygen. This in turn causes a decrease in circulation to the affected area. Sports massage improves blood and lymph circulation, releases the muscles, reduces pain and increases flexibility.
Sports Massage as part of your Conditioning Program
Incorporating sports massage into your conditioning program has many benefits. It helps you get into shape in a shorter period of time, often with less associated stiffness and soreness. Sports massage can also help you recover faster from intensive workouts by assisting in the elimination of lactic acid build-up in the muscles. Athletes must also remember that stretching must be done before, after and between workouts. We also educate all athletes on the value of resting.
We have over 20 RMT’s on staff,
several of whom are professionally trained in sports massage.
