As the weather gets warmer, we find ourselves engaging in more outdoor activities such as biking, running, kayaking, tennis, baseball, golf, and all sorts of active fun! Unfortunately, many of us can push a little too hard, a little too soon.
Are you dealing with sore muscles and joints, minor tears, or decreased range of motion?
Research suggests that massage therapy can help enhance performance and recovery in sports and exercise.

“No pain, no gain” is not necessarily the best mantra for massage treatment. Often times, our patients will ask us to go deeper and use more force in the hopes of releasing muscular tension. However, if techniques are applied too deeply and too vigorously, the body may reflexively tense up and resist the pressure, essentially making the area more difficult to treat or even worsen the condition. The trick is to go slowly, and allow the tissue to receive the stress and the stretch. Some pain is likely inevitable during the healing process, but it doesn’t have to be the norm during your massage sessions. If it hurts too much, let me know – I’m not here to harm you, I’m here to help you!
