All massage therapists at Alpine are registered therapists. They provide sport, deep tissue/therapeutic and relaxation massage.
Massage therapy is an age-old practice that continues to provide effective results in a non-invasive format. The benefits of massage therapy include: increased flexibility, reduced scar tissue and swelling in the tissue, improved circulation and healing, improved body awareness and decreased muscle tension and stress.
Sport massage focuses on athletic performance, sports injuries, and injury prevention. Sport massage therapists have a unique understanding of the demands that different sports place on your body. Treatments may be pre or post event or maintenance massage.
Therapeutic massage is important after an injury to promote healing, decreasing scar tissue adhesions as well as managing pain and improving muscle function. It can also be used for injury prevention by increasing flexibility, improving postural and body mechanic awareness and decreasing psychological stress.
