Benefits of Muscle Therapy/Bodywork

Bodywork: A Powerful Ally

There's no denying the power of muscle therapy and bodywork. Regardless of the adjectives we assign to it (therapeutic, rehabilitative, rejuvenating) or the reasons we seek it out (stress relief, sports recovery, pain management), muscle therapy can be a powerful ally in your healthcare regimen.

Bodywork is a systematic manipulation of the soft tissues of the body that focus on muscles relevant to daily activity. Many different movements and techniques are used in Sports Massage. Examples of these techniques include; compression, stripping, tapotement (rhythmic striking), myofascial release, IASTM, stretching, and trigger point pressure. Regardless of the type of bodywork/muscle therapy, these movements and techniques are used to help the individual's body achieve maximum athletic performance and will aid in reducing injury.

What are the benefits of frequent Sports Massage sessions?

  • Enhance immunity by stimulating lymph flow—the body's natural defense system
  • Exercise and stretch weak, tight, or atrophied muscles
  • Help athletes of any level prepare for, and recover from, strenuous workouts
  • Increase joint flexibility, and reduce spasms and cramping
  • Promote tissue regeneration, reducing scar tissue and stretch marks
  • Pump oxygen and nutrients into tissues and vital organs, improving circulation
  • Reduce post-surgery adhesions and swelling
  • Release endorphins—amino acids that work as the body's natural painkiller
  • Improve the condition of the body's largest organ—the skin

Regularly-scheduled bodywork sessions are an investment into your Health and Wellness, and will benefit your body's self-care regimen and athletic recovery.
