At STRIVE we utilize only NYS Licensed Massage Therapists (LMTs) to deliver a variety of massage therapy services at the highest therapeutic level. Collectively known as manual therapy, massage is a particular kind of physical treatment used to treat the musculoskeletal system, primarily designed to relieve tension and pain in the muscle and connective tissues (or fascia). It most commonly includes deep kneading and manipulation of muscles and soft tissues in areas of acute muscle soreness or strain.
Sports massage utilizes more pressure than a general massage, reaching down to tissues below the superficial layer of muscles. This results in a deeper, more thorough treatment, usually focused on one or two designated areas.
