The Sports Massage at Honolulu Massage Therapy isn't just for athletes. This specialized service is perfect for anyone seeking to recover from physical exertion or injury, or if you're just looking for a good tune-up. My Sports Massage may help enhance performance and recover from injuries.
After an initial consultation to set your goals, each session begins with muscle assessment. Working to target stressed muscles, the therapist may use kinesiology tape and/or cupping to reduce pain and inflammation. Myofascial release, active/passive release and neuromuscular therapy techniques may also be applied to target specific muscles, knots and adhesions. A special blend of jojoba and tiger balm liniment, formulated specifically for athletes to help relieve sore muscles and enhance energy levels, may be added at your request.
With cupping, suction and negative pressure can loosen muscles and fascia, encourage blood flow, and sedate the nervous system. Cupping may relieve back and neck pain, stiff muscles, anxiety, fatigue, migraines, rheumatism, and even cellulite.
The benefits of kinesiology taping include supporting sore muscles, relief from swelling, improved blood and lymphatic circulation, and decompressed joints.
The Sports Massage session may also include cold and heat therapy to alleviate acute pain and soothe stressed muscles.
