Best Sports Massage in Olympia, WA
Sports massage is intended for pre-exercise muscle preparation, post-exercise recovery, and healing of sports-specific injuries. It focuses on treating soft tissue aches, keeps the muscles in optimum conditions by reducing muscle stiffness, and improves relaxation by reducing heart rate. During a sports massage, your therapist will be working deep in the muscles realigning muscle fibres and connective tissues to flush away toxins.
Like its sister modality deep tissue, sports massage applies firm pressure on the muscles and connective tissues deep in the body. What makes sports massages unique is incorporating stretching.
