Massage & Fitness

Massage and fitness go together so perfect! Fitness builds and tones our body while massage does the maintenance and ensures the best benefit! In a nutshell, this is how massage and fitness work together:

1. Recovery is enhanced
Massage loosens up the muscles and helps them to recover. Pliability is restored.

2. Sore muscles aren’t as uncomfortable
Massaging and stretching the muscles can help work out the knots, and get the blood flowing again. Inflammation is reduced and the cells recover faster.

3. Muscles work better and move better
Regular exercise puts a strain on your muscles, ligaments and tendons, all worked on during a massage. A good sports massage focuses on the fascia, connective fibers under the skin that help muscles move smoothly and efficiently when they’re in good shape.

4. Helps with flexibility
Muscles get stiff with age. Massage helps loosen muscles and restore flexibility by stretching and lengthening.

5. Massage helps you feel better, both, physically and mentally
Happy endorphins are released from working out and it’s a cortisol reducer as well, relieving stress.

Exercise with proper muscle maintenance provides the best fitness regime!

I specialize in therapeutic massage, helping the muscles get relief and work with the body better. Every massage is tailored specifically for you to release tension, promote circulation and just relax. Each style of massage utilizes long, flowing strokes to induce serenity or more strategic strokes, smoothing out discomfort. I work deep in the muscle fascia and work on finding the site that is initiating any pain. Massage can be compared to an apple a day with how many benefits it provides for your body.
