REGISTERED MASSAGE THERAPY
Massage Therapy is an ancient art, an evidenced based science, and a healing touch that people of all ages and cultures use to treat soft-tissue pain.
Treatments plans include:
education and exercise
Massage benefits runners in many ways but these are a few of the key points:
Tight muscles inhibit their antagonist. For example, tight hip flexors will inhibit the gluteus maximus, which is the powerhouse that keeps you moving forward. With specific massage techniques and strengthening exercises we will get those glutes working in no time.
Prolonged high intensity activities will make your fascia less viscous and more prone to injury. Fascia needs to slide and glide and with fascial manipulation we can restore that movement.
Overall muscle health. Is there anything better than running on fresh legs? Having frequent massages while running on a regular basis will help in recovery and decrease muscle tension.
Massage therapy is a drug-free choice that compliments other treatments such as physiotherapy, chiropractic, personal training and medicine.
Massage therapy is also effective when used as part of a preventive care program. Some examples of general wellness care include stress management, sports training, injury prevention and performance enhancement.
