SPORTS MASSAGE / DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE
Sports Massage is a special form of massage that is typically used before, during and after athletic events, however it can also be used to treat persistent troublesome areas. Depending on the needs of the athlete, a variety of techniques can be used such as repeated deep pressure application to muscles and tissues in order to encourage better circulation and eliminate muscle inflammation.
Deep tissue work is done within one's comfort level and pain tolerance. Deeper work and sports massage can be primarily on one area of the body, such as neck and back, or the treatment can be specific to an injury or area of chronic tightness, such as Iliotibial bands and quads. Paul has provided professional treatment for many runners. triathletes, cyclists, and rowers over the past 16 years.
RELAXATION / SWEDISH MASSAGE

The treatment encompasses gentle, long strokes on the main muscle groups. This relaxation response can help decrease muscle soreness, headaches, and jaw tightness. The massage treatment includes soothing music and pleasant massage oils. Treatments of 30 to 90 minutes are available.
