Massage therapy during pregnancy can also reduce symptoms such as anxiety and back pain. Our therapists are properly trained to handle prenatal massage. We avoid the feet and low back during the first trimester and follow good practices such as positioning the patient on her left side as much as possible during the second and third trimester to keep pressure off the vena cava. Although massage therapy is contraindicated during high risk pregnancies, it helps most pregnant women.
Fitness and sports massage helps athletes – at any level – succeed. Our sports massage therapists will work with you to focus on muscles relevant to your specific sport or event, whether you plan on running a marathon, winning a body builder contest, skiing, or just going on an active outdoor vacation.

And, of course, if you are unfortunate enough to injure yourself, sports massage can be a useful part of your rehabilitation.
Sports massage can only help to a degree with pain caused by incorrect form, however. We often recommend corrective exercises designed for you and your sport to help make sure your pain or stiffness does not come back and reduce the risk of repeat injury.
