SomaSports Massage consists of:

Maintenance Bodywork - Deeper work done during training to maintain soft tissue health, prevent injury & increase performance levels.

Pre-Event Massage - Very light work done shortly before competition, to warm up the muscle groups to be used in an event.

Post-Event Massage - Light work done 1 - 2 hours after an  event to clear metabolic waste and speed muscle recovery.

Benefits of SomaSports Massage: Decreased recovery time from training / competition, enhanced rehabilitation from injury, prevention of injury, increased flexibility, increased ROM, increased performance levels and overall increased longevity / quality of an athlete’s career.

For Martial Artists - SomaSports Massage is the perfect counter therapy for striking, grappling & submission martial arts. It is the perfect Yin Healing Art to balance the effects of the Yang Martial Arts. If striking compresses a joint, SomaSports Massage can decompress it. If a submission strains a joint, SomaSports Massage can release the strain and bring the joint back to optimal function, and so on.
