Jacquie Sinclair the most experienced RMT Downtown Vancouver hands down or should I say hands on please has been massage therapist downtown Vancouver for over 20 years.  Asking Jacquie her personal opinion on makes a good sports massage she replied,

“My philosophy for a good sports massage is that it’s not how deep you go that’s important. It is important to understand where the body is at in the moment and work with the body to release the tension. Jarring moves and jabbing thrusts are not usually the best ways to promote healing in a sports massage.”
