And it is very important to maintain sports massage twice a month while you are training and off training.
The importance of sports maintenance massage is to increase circulation of blood and lymph, recovery and carry away waste products or metabolites, promote cell nutrition, reduce edema and expedite healing of damaged tissues. They calm the nervous system and restore range of motion (ROM)..
Nancy is simply amazing and a top notch therapist.
Nancy has been my best find so far since moving to Charleston.
She is one of the best massage therapist I have worked with throughout my athletic career.
I moved to the Charleston area for work while training for Ironman #6.
Nancy has helped keep my body happy while logging my biggest training miles.
As a triathlete pushing for my first half ironman and a marathon runner,
I do some pretty rough stuff to my body. There is honestly only so much stretching and Epsom salt the body
can handle before you need to see a real pro, and Nancy at Charleston Sports Massage is the only person I will see.
She works out all your pain points and then takes care of the rest.
Between cupping and deep tissue, the work Nancy does helps me go further.
Nancy is an amazing massage therapist with gifted hands.
She is very professional, caring and listens to her clients’ needs.
My partner and I both had massages with Nancy and highly recommend her.
As a marathoner and triathlete who does way too many events each year,
I’m constant beating up my body.
I couldn’t have accomplished all I did over the past two years
without Nancy’s recovery treatments.”
No one compares! Nancy is truly a one of a kind LMT, and it was evident in the individual care
and attention she gave me from my very first visit.
Training for long distance triathlons take a beating on my body,
but my appointments with Nancy helped manage that and keep me moving.
She has set a very high standard, and her practice is unmatched.
I would highly recommend visiting her, you will be thankful you did!
As a professional athlete the health of my body is a very important aspect of my life.
Nancy has done an amazing job of setting herself apart,
not only by her knowledge and expertise on what the body needs to function
at a high level, but with how personable and easy going she is.
I would highly recommend not only athletes to her,
but anyone who is looking for a massage therapist
that truly is invested and concerned with her clients well being!
Ever wonder what the “knot” or “crunchy” is on your shoulder? Plus, it’s the size of a quarter or golf ball!
When a muscle becomes injured or overused, the fascia between the skin and muscle forms adhesions or trigger points, preventing the muscle from working well.
Fascia is a sheet of connective tissue made of collagen, which stabilizes the muscle and other internal structures. Fascia is everywhere in the body, including organs, muscles, nerves, and blood vessels, and the fascia layer lies between the skin and muscle.
A healthy muscle slides and moves without restrictions, but when a muscle is injured or overused, fibroblasts form in your collagen. The fascia becomes extra dense and creates fascia adhesions. The overproduction of fascia adhesions can affect your mobility in muscles and joints.
Myofascial is fascia that covers the muscles. Myofascial release breaks up the fibrosis that occurs in the fascia, eliminates pain, and restores motion to the tissue.
Myofascial release is a soft tissue therapy for treating skeletal muscles with compression, tension, and movement.
Myofascial release is important in sports massage because the trigger points compromise the tissue structure, causing strain on the tissues that must compensate for its weakness. You experience less range of motion in the joints, premature fatigue, chronic pain and injury, and less efficient motor skill performance. This isn’t good for an athlete!
I cannot stress the importance of maintenance sports massage. If you’re an athlete, a sports massage 2-3 times a month helps break down adhesions, improves flexibility and range of motion, prevents injuries, and promotes injury recovery.
