Sports Massage | Noe Valley

The more that you ask from your body, the more you need to give it in return.  It really is that simple.  You can’t overwork your body and expect to feel great all the time.  At a certain point you push your body too far and start to damage soft tissues.  

It may start with a hamstring pull.  Often, it is something more subtle…such as gradually decreasing flexibility or stiffness.  At a certain point you start to hurt, and your performance suffers.  You have two choices:  address the damage on an ongoing basis or wait until you have suffered a significant injury.  

Sports massage is a great way to keep the accumulating scar tissue to a minimum while addressing pain and maintaining flexibility.

Dr. Smith is great at what he does.  He will make you feel welcome and quickly get to the root of your problem.  If you come in for massage you will receive so much more.  He often diagnoses the source of an issue while working to correct it.  It is not unusual for him to spend extra time at the end of a treatment instructing clients on stretches and exercises specific to their needs.

Dr. Smith often makes recommendations on other things that you can do to improve your health.  You may have a mineral deficiency that you are unaware of, inadequate arch support, or an undiagnosed muscular imbalance.  He will never push services or products that you do not need, and you will leave feeling like you made a friend.
