Benefits

Relax with your coffee and let us tell you how to get the most out of your Massage Therapy.

Massage doesn’t just feel great, it also provides excellent recovery assistance for athletes. Getting a regular massage once a month or more can help you reduce soreness and risk of injury while increasing mobility so you can perform better. During high intensity exercise, lactic acid and general toxins from acidity increase in your muscles. Your body can naturally clear lactic acid and toxins with time and rest, however massage can help expedite the process, especially when you are working out often. Other Benefits Include:
  • Massage lengthens fascia and muscle easing it back into place. This increases
    range of motion and has the added benefit of making your muscles look more toned.
  • Increases blood flow and circulation getting more oxygen into your body.
  • Decreases anxiety and stress.
  • Helps reduce pain and inflammation in the joints, tendons, nerves and bones.

The best time to get a Massage:

  1. At least 45 minutes after you have completed your  workout for the day.
  2. During recovery periods – rest days or deload weeks.
  3. Three days before a competition or race. This will help improve your range
    of motion and mobility for your competition.
  4. After a competition or race to help you recover quickly.

Getting the most out of your Massage

You may find that your muscles are sore the next 24 – 48 hours after a massage.
Some ways that you can help your body recover and get the most benefit
from your massage include:

  • Drinking lots of water before and after your massage. Being properly hydrated
    assists lymphatic drainage and blood flow.
  • Doing a cold plunge right after your massage. This helps prevent toxins from
    reentering the muscles.
  • Practicing Yoga or stretching an hour or more after the massage
    to assist the body in expelling toxins.
  • Using heat packs or having a warm bath with Epsom salts
    reduces muscle tenderness.
  • Get a good night of sleep.
