Did you know...Sports massage, also called athletic massage, is tailored to help someone who just generally likes to push themselves a little too hard at the gym workout, a weekend warrior, or a self-proclaimed athlete prepare their body for optimal performance, recover after a big event, or function well during training. Sports massage emphasizes the prevention and healing of soft tissue injuries.
Are you a candidate for a Sports Massage? People who are actively engaged in movement-oriented sports are understanding the benefits of regular massage therapy, and sports massage specifically, to alleviate and recover from sports-related injuries, chronic pain, and restricted range of motion. You don't have to be a professional athlete to benefit from sports massage. Anyone who engages in regular exercise or sports activities such as soccer, golf, tennis, ballet, and even ballroom dancing can benefit from Sports Massage.
A sports massage is especially helpful if you suffer from a nagging injury or orthopedic condition - tender neck, shoulders, elbows, lower back, or knees that keep you from performing at your best. At Wake Medical Massage, your Certified / Licensed Medical Massage Therapist will evaluate and focus on the problem area - frozen shoulder or pulled hamstring, for instance - rather than giving you a full-body massage. Call 919.228.9559 to schedule an appointment

Your therapist at Wake Medical Massage will go over your needs and expectations and incorporate a variety of techniques to achieve the desired goals. We assess and concentrate on a specific condition or problem area that you present, usually associated with some sort of sports activity, such as cycling, running, tennis, golf, and other common sports injuries.
As needed, we incorporate Myofascial release and Neuromuscular trigger point therapy to breakdown adhesions (muscle knots), stretching to improve range of motion, boost endurance and performance, and Certified Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD) to help facilitate and improve lymphatic flow. Call 919-228-9559 to start your relief process.
Massage of any form involves hands-on manual manipulation of soft tissues by a skilled therapist. For your safety and hygiene, especially during a pandemic, we do not cut corners by utilizing unapproved tools including plastic Thumbsavers, Guasha, and Metallic Instrument-Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization Tools IASTM Learn More ►

Wake Medical Massage offers massage therapy benefits in all stages of sportsmanship:
Pre-event sports massage -- a short, stimulating massage 15 - 45 minutes before the event. It is directed toward the parts of the body that will be involved in the exertion.
Post-event sports massage -- given within an hour or two of the event, to normalize the body's tissues.
Restorative sports massage -- given during training to allow the athlete to train harder and with less injury.
Rehabilitative sports massage -- aimed at alleviating pain due to injury and returning the body to health.
