As an athlete, I know from experience that you must take care of your muscular system. Sore muscles can impact both comfort and performance. Repetitive patterns of movement, be they sport specific or not, can create muscular imbalances that lead to chronic issues. Acute injuries can create muscular spasm and tightness that needs to be addressed as a core component of the healing process. Quality muscular recovery is as important to performance as training. BodyKinesis provides a variety of massage modalities, founded in deep tissue and sports massage, that are catered to the needs of individual clients.
Standard: These sessions are designed to be an integral part of everyone’s self care regimen, whether the strain on your muscular system comes from training for ultra marathons or the repetitive stress of time spent in off ice chair at a keyboard. General deep tissue massage is catered to the client’s individual needs and involves full body work with particular attention given to problem areas. Deep tissue massage has been demonstrated to relieve chronic muscle tension, break down scar tissue, and release toxins. In so doing, this style of massage can help with the management of both acute and chronic pain and associated immobility while promoting healing.
Recovery: After a long, intense workout/training session, or event, the body has specific needs. Recovery sessions meet these needs by flushing the major muscle groups, encouraging blood flow throughout the body, and elongating fatigued, over- worked muscles. Recovery massage aids in the repair of micro tears associated with intense physical activity thereby reducing the decreased performance resulting from delayed onset muscle soreness. In addition, recovery massage has been shown to decrease cortisol while increasing serotonin and dopamine levels in the brain. End result: you feel great and recover faster.
Injury Specific: Working in accordance with a client’s physical therapist, physician, athletic trainer, etc. bodyKinesis provides injury specific deep tissue massage designed to reduce discomfort, increase mobility, and accelerate the healing process.
