sport massage

Sports massage is geared toward all kinds of athletes, from professionals to weekend- warriors. The technique is specific to the athlete's sport of choice, and focuses on areas of the body that are overused and placed under excessive stress. Commonly, this targets muscle-tendon junctions and joint capsules.

Sports Massage is a crucial component of a training regimen, and can be used to enhance performance and reduce recovery time. Studies have shown decreased muscle soreness in athletes who received massage before or after exercise.

Key benefits include: increased flexibility, reduced fatigue, and prevention of injuries to promote optimal health.

TESTIMONIALS

 
CYNTHIA W. "When I went to see Natalie, I was seeking solutions for a mix of problems. I liked her holistic approach, her deep knowledge of traditional and new methodologies, and her compassionate follow through. I am a dancer, as is Natalie, and I especially appreciated her awareness and insights about movement, stretching and athleticism."

STEVE H. "I've been seeing Natalie as a client for several months. I have had chronic Achilles tendinitis for nearly three years. In that time, I've been to an orthopedist, podiatrist, massage therapist and another physical therapist-all to no avail. I met Natalie in a business capacity and was so impressed with her ability to connect with people, outlook and background that I decided to give PT another try. I am glad I did. After 7-8 sessions with Natalie, my tendinitis is about 50% better, and still improving. Unlike the other practitioners I've seen, Natalie took the time to ask detailed questions about my condition. She changed my stretching routine, and I can feel the difference she's making after each therapy session."

KOEN S. "Natalie is one of the best in her profession. I have a great history with several physical therapists in Europe, but Natalie takes it to another level. Her experience helps to detect the problem very quickly and her skills make them go away. I would highly recommend her for your health and well-being."
