Our Massage Therapist’s Technique
Combating pain, discomfort, tightness and stress is the driving force for our body work specialists and poses a terrific challenge we love to conquer. Some issues take a slow and intense focus to unlock and free up mobility, while others require a rapid flush of circulation to trigger healing and recovery. With an Urban Sports Therapy massage therapist, you get it all. We combine seven powerful and transformative modalities in each session specifically tailored to the needs of each individual. No two people are the same, no two physical problems are the same, therefore no two Urban Sports Therapy massages are ever the same.
A single sports massage session with an Urban Sports Therapy therapist will incorporate any or all following techniques, creating the path to uninhibited and pain-free movement:
Deep Tissue Massage:
Targets specific areas of the body to relieve severe tension in the muscle and the connective tissue, or fascia.
stimulates the circulatory system and speeds recovery by increasing blood flow, creating a state of constancy and balance in the body.
therapist-assisted stretching that involves active motion and isometric work to enhance flexibility and range of motion.
Joint Mobilization & Oscillation:
The movement of skeletal joints in order to restore joint play that may have been lost due to injury, overexertion, or intensive training.
A detailed massage technique focused on the realignment of the body by altering the tone and length of connective tissues, or fascia.
A combination of stretching, dynamic postures and deep massage to move energy, or Qi, throughout the body.
Trigger Point Therapy:
A sometimes intense technique focused on deactivating trigger points, or hyper-irritable ‘knots’, in order to speed relief of focused pain and discomfort.
