Extend the Life of Your Athletic Endeavors with a Sports Massage
Sports massage is not just for athletes, but anyone with tight, dense muscles. Sports massage keeps your body in better physical condition, helps prevent injuries, restores mobility to injured muscle tissue, boosts athletic performance and extends the life and good health of your athletic endeavours. Whether you are a professional athlete, or someone who just strives to maintain a high level of fitness, a deep tissue sports massage from Kristina Lentz will allow you perform at your best.
Tight, dense muscles are prone to injury, and sport massage is especially effective for relaxing and lengthening tight muscles. When muscles tighten and spasm, they negatively affect all of the neighbouring muscles as well. This results in a rapid deterioration of both power and co-ordination and decreases your mobility and performance in athletic activities. Regular sport massage releases muscle spasms, rapidly heals muscle injuries and helps prevent further injury.
Sports massage is a deep, firm massage with pressure, without causing pain. The four basic strokes in sports massage are short with direct pressure, friction, compression and percussion. These are followed by the long, Swedish strokes of effleurage and kneading to disperse energy and calm the tissues. Sport massage treatments can also involve trigger point work, myofascial release, deep tissue, acupressure and orthopaedic massage.
If you enjoy athletic activities and want to sustain your ability to do them throughout your lifetime, this treatment is for you. Whether you are a walker, hiker, bicyclist or golfer, an invigorating sports massage at Beyond Massage in San Rafael will help you maintain your body at its best.
