What is Massage Therapy?
Clinical massage therapy applies a variety of massage therapy techniques to solve your soft tissue health issues. Clinical massage therapy can help ease muscle spasms, tension, pain, inflammation, and improve range of motion.
Athletes involved in sports that require bursts of speed (like football, basketball, or soccer) are at the greatest risk for soft tissue muscle strains. The pain caused by these strains and muscle injuries can lead to chronic muscle tightness and eventual muscle imbalance — decreasing your overall athletic performance.
Clinical massage therapy focuses on your soft tissues:
- Fascia (bands of connective tissue that hold your body together)
- Tendons (connects your muscles to your bones)
- Ligaments (connects your bones together)
