Depending on an athlete's needs and goals, sessions may utilize a combination of many different techniques. Neuromuscular therapy with a combination of cupping Therapy is particularly effective in facilitating the recovery of athletic injuries, such as muscle strains, tendonitis, and other overuse injuries. In addition, Neuromuscular Therapy focuses on observing posture and movement to help identify other structural factors contributing to the pain problem.

 

Sports Massage is an important part of training for any athlete, whether the most competitive athlete training for a triathlon or the more casual athlete who exercises more sporadically or even just on the weekend.
