Sport massage can be an important part of active people's lives as it can both enhance performance and prevent injuries. This massage usually targets specific areas of the body and may involve deep pressure.
Andrea integrates sports massage with stretching techniques and enjoys educating his clients about their 'sore spots' in order to teach them about preventing future problems.
Myofascial Release is a slow-paced technique which releases the connective tissue that wraps around the muscles. It helps to realign the muscle fibers in order to improve mobility. Typically, this technique is performed without the use of lotion or oil.
Andrea particularly integrates this techique on areas where he notes restricted range-of-motion.
Swedish massage is a full-body massage primarily meant to relax the body and the mind. It uses mild pressure and long strokes.
