What is Massage Therapy?
In short, it’s the manipulation of soft tissues (not Kleenex) of the body including muscles, connective tissue (Fascia), tendons (what connects the muscle to the bone), ligaments and joints. Massage Therapy is a clinically oriented health care option that helps alleviate the discomfort associated with everyday occupational stresses, muscular overuse and many chronic pain conditions.
Why You Should Use Massage Therapy?
Pain Reduction: I mean who really likes pain anyways? Pain is a signal that something is wrong. Whether it’s from an injury (sprain, strain, tendonitis, etc.) or from overworked muscles, pain can negatively impact your performance when training. Relieving pain will only enhance your workouts and your overall goals.
Flexibility: Flexibility is super important when it comes to high intensity & volume training, why? The constant workout leads to muscle tension, which can lead to adhesions. An adhesion is where the muscle fibers and fascia (imagine sausage casing) can stick together. The result is a decrease in flexibility and an increased chance for injury.
Assist in Recovery: What is recovery? It’s what happens in between your workouts. This is where the magic happens! You can lift as many weights as you want but if your body isn’t properly fueled (diet) or your battery isn’t fully charged (sleep), you’ll hurt your chances of obtaining that summer six pack. Regular massage treatments will help to reduce some of that tension and promote deeper and longer sleep.
Who Would Benefit from Massage Therapy?
Those with occupations that spend most of their day sitting, who are in high stress positions, athletes, weekend warriors, people who suffer from chronic pain or who are injured. Massage therapy is a multi-purposeful tool with a holistic treatment approach.
