Why sports massage?

Regular massage has been shown to:

Increase flexibility                                             Decrease muscle tension

Increase the elimination of lactic acid           Decrease the chance of injury

Increase joint range of motion                        Decrease recovery time between workouts

Increase blood flow                                           Decrease muscle spasm

Increases your sense of well-being
