Massage Offerings

Sports Massage

Specifically designed for people involved in regular physical activity, sports massage is ideal for promoting healing, promoting recovery and preventing / treating injury. The focus of sports massage isn’t on relaxation, but on preventing and treating injury as a way to enhance training and performance.

Sports massage is a direct descendant of Swedish massage, but employs a variety of techniques used in combination to provide an overall benefit. Specifically, sports massage therapy is designed to alleviate muscle tension, inflammation and improve flexibility and range of motion.

The long, smooth strokes of Swedish massage are often used to improve blood flow, enhance metabolic waste removal and provide overall relaxation of tense muscles and connective tissue. In addition, trigger point techniques are often used to alleviate adhesions (knots) and allow muscles and connective tissues to relax and regain their original/natural positions. These are just two of the many techniques a massage therapist may combine while performing a sports massage.

Any athlete, whether amateur or professional, can benefit from sports massage. Sports massage techniques can be used pre- and post-event for different purposes. Pre-event or pre-training massage can serve to warm up the muscles, increase blood flow and improve flexibility. Post-event therapy can serve to speed recovery and provide relaxation of hard-working muscles and joints, while helping to remove metabolic wastes like lactic acid.

Even if you are not an athlete, a sports massage may be helpful in the relief of tension, muscle soreness, joint pain, back pain, muscle spasms and general soreness or fatigue.

Recovery Massage

The right combination of massage can utilize your body’s natural way to recover and heal, especially if recovering from training and/or injuries. Tri-Covery will use massage techniques to speed your recovery time, maximizing your training and performance.
