When you’re watching football, occasionally a 350-pound lineman breaks through the defensive line and flanks the quarterback with a solid tackle. “Ooo! That’s gotta’ hurt,” you think. It does! The next moment, the game is stalled, and that quarterback is laid out on his back – not seriously injured, necessarily, but in pain and possibly out of the game. This is when sports therapy comes into play.
For such incidents, sports therapy massages were invented. It may be the quarterback got off with a relatively minor injury because a professional practitioner gave him a good “rub down” before the game. Now, the injured player will make another appointment (maybe more than one) to get himself healed faster for the next game. A brisk massage on the injured area will bring the oxygen- and nutrient-laden blood cells rushing forth to repair the damage.
Sports therapy massages are given to both professional and amateur athletes to strengthen soft tissue, help prevent injuries when they can, or to help heal battered and strained muscles. Sean McGrath of Sean’s Massage Center has had athletes on his impressive list of clientele. He has given massages for members of the NBA Cleveland Cavaliers and Sports Medicine Grant & Orthopedic Associates.
Also, Sean is a highly skilled massage therapist who has served the people in the Columbus, Ohio area for over 19 years with Swedish massage therapy in addition to a number of other techniques. Sean’s Massage Center has two convenient locations to better serve the people in his region – Dublin/Upper Arlington and Pickerington – to better serve the people in his region.
When a client walks into Sean’s Massage Center for a sports massage or any other service, he or she is immersed into an atmosphere that encourages relaxation and healing. Our practitioners massage our clients with natural Aveda oil on a warmed table with soothing music playing in the background to further advance the ambience. Some of the center’s members have developed friendships with the practitioners, who already know some the problems the clients deal with. New faces are always welcome of course to come in, share, and be treated by a professional.
