If your muscles are too strong without enough flexibility, your post workout recovery will take longer or you'll hurt yourself in training.
Massage and physical training go hand-in-hand. You focus on your training, endurance and strength, and we keep your tissues pliable and healthy. As you train, your body will develop knots, tension and trigger points. These things can be helped with stretching, but massage therapy is far superior to working them out and keeping the tissues pliable and healthy.
Our therapists are also athletes who do a lot of resistance training, cardio work and other sports hobbies, so they understand first-hand the mechanics of what is happening and how to best support them.
Don't wait till you get hurt, come get sports massage therapy and prevent the kinds of injuries which commonly occur. If you have already strained or hurt something, let us work with it and get you back to your sport.
HOW THIS MODALITY WORKED FOR A CLIENT
"I do a lot of different sports and go to the gym for weight lifting on 3-4 days a week. Before I started getting massage on a regular basis, I was getting injured all the time, I wasn't getting any results out of my workouts, I was feeling tired and run down. I felt like I was hurting my body more than benefiting it. Since I've been getting regular massage over the last year, I haven't been getting any of those problems; no pain. I've been getting more results as far as building muscle, being agile and being better at my sports." - DeAnne Shade
"I am an over 50 athlete that works out five days a week and has been using body work to stay on track with my training life. When my favorite massage therapist retired from the business six years ago, I did not think that I would find another athlete/therapist that would understand my training and body. It took a long time. Then I found Adinah at Lifelong Wellness Center. Adinah is an excellent massage therapist with an active athletic life. She is an athlete that listens to her clients and takes copious notes about your what your body needs and tracks the progress you make session by session. She is not going to give you a "standard massage" unless that is what you want, and that great, but her skills really shine when she is working something you are focused on improving. She really takes the time to understand what you are working on and incorporates your observations into your session. I have been working with Adinah for a few months and intend to continue. If you are an athlete looking for someone to become part of your team, I can recommend Adinah's practice without reservation." ~ Bob Long
