Sports Massage Therapy At bodono Is Unique:
Our sports massage treatments incorporate more than just a massage. Unlike a so-called sports massage offered at gyms and spas, at bodono we incorporate a thorough assessment and tailor our sports massage treatments to each athlete’s specific needs and areas of concern.
What bodono Sports Massage Can Do For You:
The athlete’s body performs strenuous repetitive movements, which can lead to imbalance, overuse, and injury over time. Sports massage helps reduce recovery time, improves endurance and flexibility, and helps prevent future injuries.
Our treatment includes a full biomechanics assessment—an anatomical analysis of the sports movements and kinetic dysfunction—so that the massage can be tailored to each athlete’s specific needs. Treatments are adapted to our client’s training cycle throughout the season to achieve best results during pre-season/pre-event, competition, post-season/post-event, and off-season.
At bodono a sports massage is more than just deep work. We apply a variety of specific massage techniques as appropriate. These include but are not limited to: myofascial release, soft tissue mobilization, stripping, friction, proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation, and stretching.
