Sports are huge in Squamish, the North Shore, and Whistler. Lay back and get your massage if you live in Squamish, North Shore, or Whistler. Our sports massage is adapted to meet the needs of the person doing the athletic activity. It differs depending on the clients condition, type of activity and whether it is for conditioning just before activity, for maintenance between workouts or recovery just after activity. Specialized techniques help to remove toxins, stretch muscles and break down scar tissue.Deep tissue techniques are used to release chronic muscle tension through slower strokes and more direct deep pressure. The purpose is to “unstick” the fibres of a muscle while releasing deeply-held patterns of tension, removing toxins, while relaxing and soothing the muscle. It is important to drink water after the treatment to flush out toxins.Benefits include injury prevention, pain reduction, speeding muscle recovery and circulation. As with all massage, sports massage promotes relaxation and therapeutic effects on all systems of the body.
