Sports massage uses trigger point therapy, deep tissue massage and stretching for athletes who want to keep their bodies in superior condition.  Trigger points are point therapy are tender areas on the belly of the muscle rather than along energy pathways, as in Acupressure points.  Contracted muscle fibers slows the blood flow, limited oxygenated blood and nutrients to the muscle, creating a triggered muscle point.  Metabolic waste and toxins can build up in the area, causing pain, tension and spasming.

Deep tissue work is performed within a clients’ pain threshold, however the “good hurt” can occur with deeper pressure, and long-lasting results.  When muscles are overused we experience microscopic muscle tears from the repeated stress.  The body then uses tissue calcium to patch the tears, and over time scar tissue calcifies and/or becomes fibrotic.  These tissues can often be mistaken for arthritis due to the pain and tenderness.

Calcified and fibrotic muscles can occur by:

  • Microscopic Muscle Tears
  • Repeated Overuse
  • Scarring
  • Collagen Crosslinking (collagen fibrils form strong chemical bonds with adjacent fibrils)
  • High Levels of Lactate Acid
  • Acidic Water (mineral deficiencies and imbalances)
  • pH Imbalance
  • Enzyme deficiencies

Sherry Weldon is the BEST!  If you want a really skilled massage therapist that has invested in her education, has built her reputation, and is a true professional, she is worth it.  Feel better, and you want it done right, see Sherry.  Maureen A.

I have been getting sports/deep tissue massages for many years. I find Sherry to be the best massage therapist I’ve ever had! I feel so taken care of and that no one else matters when I’m in Sherry’s hands. I highly recommend Sherry and have even had her come to my office as well as my home.  I feel so honored and lucky to have Sherry in my life helping me take the best possible care of myself. Thank you!  Catherine S.
