is a combination of massage strokes and techniques combined with flexibility and specific exercise routines geared to increase an athletes performance capabilities. The application of Sports Massage is determined by ones own specific anatomical and physiological needs. Basic musculoskelatal evaluations, orthopedic assessments, and flexibility analysis do this. By determining the athletes specific needs, the Sports Massage therapist will not only be able to provide increased strength, speed and flexibility, but also improve biomechanical efficiency and decrease the potential for injury. This is a comprehensive program with a shared responsibility between the Sports Massage Therapist and the athlete.
There are numerous benefits to a comprehensive Sports Massage program:

- And much more...

How are NMT and Sports Massage treatments different from a basic massage Treatment?
While each system uses a hands-on approach to soft tissue manipulation, NMT and Sports Massage are extremely specific. Like massage therapy, NMT and Sports Massage address the muscle bellies, but they also go to work with the entire length of the muscle from origin to insertion. Instead of a general approach, Sports Massage identifies postural and biomechanical distortions that are involved with pain patterns. These systems also go on to strategically manipulate specific soft tissue components to facilitate structural change and balance.
The Boston Bodyworker therapists are specially trained in the area of On-site Sports Massage. We have extensive experience working with athletes during "Pre" and "Post" event activities such as marathons and triathlons. There is no longer a need to wait in those ridiculously long lines after a grueling triathlon only to be completely cooled down before receiving what was to be a more beneficial cool down consisting of muscular flushing and stretching. Most athletes ranging from the "weekend warriors" to the most competitive professionals, practice and compete with other friends or spouses. Having the benefit of a professionally trained therapist on-site to assist you and your friends both before, during and after any event is the edge that could make the difference between going home a "sore" looser or an invigorated winner. On-site Sports Massage can also benefit any athlete in training albeit at a track, gym, tennis court or wherever your training endeavors may take you.
Today's world consisting of split second updates, hair pinned turning points and race for the deadline proposals is sure to raise the competitive spirit in us all. Being alert, focused, and ready at all times is the edge that each of us long to maintain. With societies increased demand on both time and efficiency, On-site Sports Massage is the edge you are looking for.
