Massage Therapy for Sports Injuries
Massage therapy can help athletes improve their performance, prevent injury and provide treatment for conditions resulting from overuse or injury.
RMTs are trained to treat specific sports-related injuries including:
- Muscle Strains
- Shin Splints
- Jumper’s knee and tracking disorders of the knee
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Tendonitis incl. tennis and golfers elbow
- Dislocations and subluxations
Benefits include increased circulation to help flush the body of metabolic waste and toxin build up, greater flexibility and range of motion, and instruction in effective and appropriate strengthening and stretching programs.
Lotus Massage Therapy also offers infrared sauna treatments for helping athletes reach their performance goals. Athletes can passively condition the cardiovascular system (including during injury) through the use of the infrared sauna. Cardiac output, heart rate and metabolic rate is substantially raised. The sauna can help speed up injury recovery via increased circulation to the affected area. A heat-conditioned athlete can burn off 600-800 kcal per 30 minute session
