Here at Action Spine & Sports Medicine, we believe in the scientifically-supported magic of a good massage.
What is sports massage therapy?
Sports massage therapy is where a registered massage therapist will manipulate your muscles and soft tissues, in order to stimulate blood circulation, promote lymphatic activity, and relax your tissues — all to improve physical ability and/or performance.
Olga Valiukh is a licensed massage therapist who attended the Denver School of Massage. When she isn’t relaxing on a sunny beach, she’s proud to offer sports massage therapy here at Action Spine & Sports Medicine here in Denver.
Olga specializes in the following sports massage therapy practices:
- Deep tissue massage
- Trigger point therapy
- Myofascial decompression (cupping)
- Hot stone massage
- Russian sports massage
- Swedish massage
Denver is an active city. With in-town hiking destinations like Red Rocks Park so close, it’s obvious how Denverites stay in such good shape. But regular exercise does come with some risks.
Whether you’re exercising on the weekends or participating in professional sports, sports massage therapy can work wonders for anyone’s muscles and mood.
Without even scratching the surface, here are 6 benefits of sports massage therapy:
- Reduced muscle tension
- Better range of motion
- Higher quality of sleep
- Increased scar healing
- Sense of well-being
Olga works with sports medicine provider Dr. Benjamin Cowin (DC, MS, ATC, ICSC, CAFS). They both proudly practice at Action Spine & Sports Medicine in the heart of Denver, Colorado, half a block off Brighton Boulevard.
