Sports / Athletic MassageAt Simsbury Therapeutic Massage & Wellness, we are perhaps best known for our work with athletes, both adult, and our incredible local teen athletes! In a sports massage, or athletic massage session, the needs of the athlete are carefully discussed and then addressed. This could be injury, rehabilitation, event preparation, event warm-down work (for example, after a marathon), a regular regimen to help keep tension down in order to get more workouts in, or simply a wellness regimen (such as the one olympian Michael Phelps keeps) to maintain a high level of performance. Whether it's an old, nagging injury you'd like to address, or you would like to keep injury at bay, let our therapists use what they know about the body, and healing, to help you reach your performance goals with massage.
What is Sports/Atheltic Massage?
We have specialized needs when it comes to achieving optimal wellness. For athletes, sometimes they need a little extra TLC. Whether you’re a member of the Wolf Pack who suffered a hip flexor strain, a New Britain Bee with an oblique strain, or pulled a muscle shooting your shot for the Suns, we got your bases covered…literally.
Athletes have particular problem areas that need to be addressed.
That’s why getting a sports massage in Simsbury is a completely interactive experience.
Your licensed therapist will craft a therapy session centered around orthopedic massage.
They will tailor your visit to meet your immediate needs while treating the body as a whole.
At Simsbury Therapeutic Massage & Wellness, we’ve proudly provided sports and athletic massages in Hartford County for almost three decades. Our team is built with athletes and self-professed sports fanatics.
They have the desire, passion, and knowledge-base to provide your body with relief. That way, you can get back out there and keep representing CT!
Benefits of a Sports/Athletic Massage
You only get one body, and boy, can it take a beating! Whether you’re being tackled on the gridiron, pushed against the glass on the rink, or knocked on your bottom on the basketball court, athletes need some self-care. That’s why Hartford County has been getting athletic massages in Simsbury at STM Wellness since 1993.
Getting a sports massage in Simsbury is the ultimate tool for maintaining the upkeep your body requires. It’s a way for you to travel inside and figure out what’s causing you discomfort. Work closely with your licensed therapist as they pinpoint, isolate, and treat the sore spots. On top of alleviating pain, there are additional benefits to receiving a sports massage in Hartford County.
Better Blood Circulation
During your therapy session at STM Wellness, your licensed therapist will help draw stagnant blood cells and lymph nodes from deep within your tissues. That’s why many athletes alternate therapy sessions between a sports massage and a lymph drainage treatment. Together, these practices should help alleviate some of the swellings around the connective tissue between your muscles.
With deep, gliding strokes and firm pressure, your licensed therapist will help pull toxins from deep within. These movements will bring toxins closer to the surface. That way, you can eliminate these toxins from your system more efficiently.
Ultimately, getting a sports massage in Simsbury will alleviate inflammation in sensitive areas, providing you relief on and off the field.
Improved blood circulation will also speed up the healing process.
As your licensed therapist works on the body, they will aid the transport of oxygenated blood cells to sore areas, wounds, or other consequences for going all-in during game-time.
Improved Range of Motion
Our therapists who are licensed to perform athletic massages in Hartford County are up-to-date on the best practices for treating an athlete.
The team at STM Wellness is well-schooled in human anatomy and implement unique stretches and massages to help improve your overall performance.
One of these benefits is an improved range of motion.
Whether you’re serving the volleyball from across the court, are throwing the ball home from the outfield, or are working on your golf score, everyone can stand to have a better range of motion.
We are just excited to see you excel at your sport as you are to participate in it. That’s why our team goes all out in ensuring you leave our office pain-free and ready to set new records in your preferred sport.
Many of us wait until the damage is already done to get a massage. While receiving an athletic massage in Hartford County can go a long way in improving an injury, it can also do wonders in preventing one from occurring.
As any athlete will attest, you need to stretch before you perform at a high level. Our team uses a soothing, rewarding, and therapeutic combination of massage and stretching to help you reach peak fitness goals. Therefore, we help you improve your flexibility so your body is better equipped to handle the beast you’re about to unleash.
