MUSCLE RELEASE

Is a more intense technique and is generally used on targeted, more densely-muscled areas. Your sports massage therapist will use deep, strong, slow pressure, along the muscle fibers. They will check in with you regarding the intensity and adjust the pressure as needed. The goal is to increase range-of-motion and elasticity.

PNF STRETCHING

In PNF (proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation) the sports massage therapist uses assisted stretching, in conjunction with isometrics. The therapist evaluate and assist the recipient through a series of stretches and movements. PNF helps decrease muscle tension while increasing mobility. It also increases awareness of unique body patterns.

COMPRESSION MASSAGE

Compression is often used at the beginning of a sports massage as an evaluation tool and a muscle warm-up. The therapist will usually keep one hand stationary while pressing the other into the muscle; it’s usually used on large surfaces, like legs or back. Rhythmic compression helps soft tissue relax.
