Athletic Massage Therapy and Treatments

Our experienced Registered Massage Therapists at Bronte Wellness offer two phases of treatment to those seeking sports massage therapy.

Pre-sport is meant to warm up the tissues prior to an event, training, or competition. The goal in this phase is to get your game ready. The point of this phase is not to relax your muscles, but to get them ticking with anticipation and have you performing at your best potential. A sports massage therapist will target and stimulate specific muscle groups in order to increase blood flow, stimulate the brain-body connection, and increase muscle tone. By doing this, we encourage greater receptivity of these muscle groups for improved performance and help facilitate better mental preparation.

Post-sport athletic massage therapy is all about recovery, ensuring proper healing after intense competition or training to prevent injury. A sports massage therapist will do this by facilitating proper metabolism of build-up waste products in muscle tissues, ensuring joints stay lubricated while promoting proper muscle function by lengthening short muscles and relieving you of painful trigger points (knots) that can create barriers to optimal performance.

Your sports massage treatments are tailored to suit your needs, so don’t hesitate to discuss your needs with our highly qualified Registered Massage Therapists. We recognized that everyone is unique, and your sports massage therapy treatments need to suit your needs to optimize your performance and healing.
