Calistoga Sports Massage

Massage has quickly become a key component of any complete workout, as people are discovering the benefits of doing ‘damage control’ to address the wear and minor injuries that result from strenuous movement. Whether you are an athlete, a health-conscientious individual, or simply trying to get in shape as quickly as possible, sports massage can greatly increase the efficiency and results of your workout regimen. The psychological benefits of massage are just an added bonus to its’ many physiological ones; massage serves a double purpose of relaxing an individual after a bout of strenuous activity, while simultaneously speeding up the muscles’ conditioning process, whereby they grow stronger and more suited to physical demands.

Though techniques may vary depending on the athlete’s needs and condition, sports massage commonly encompasses a blend of deep Swedish massage, compression massage, cross-fiber massage, trigger-point massage, and lymphatic massage.
