What is sports massage?
Ordinary massage is used for relaxation. Sports and Remedial Massage is detailed, focused, anatomically specific massage that targets and corrects your unique physical issues. Whether you are a professional athlete nursing a chronic injury, a weekend warrior sore from overdoing it, or a mum with back pain from toting a toddler, Sports Massage can help you.
I had a massage from Adele last week. Been doing lots of extra training recently for an upcoming triathlon and was feeling really tight. Back on form now and feeling great - especially neck and shoulder area. Adele is a level above other therapists I've had in her background knowledge of anatomy and "how stuff works", as well as her hands-on technique. Thanks Adele! - Facebook recommendation.
Adelle is hands-down the best massage therapist in the area. I’ve tried numerous therapists (back and shoulder knots and tightness from computer use), and no one has the professionalism and skill that Adelle possesses. She seems to know exactly where your problem/pain originates from and fixes it. I don’t know how she does it, but compared with many of the other therapists I’ve tried (sports massage, thai massage, deep tissue), she is by far and away the best at what she does. - Adam T.
