Three reasons why active people need regular massage

If you’re active daily, or even just going for a long hike on the weekends, you could benefit from receiving regular massage sessions.

Here are three reasons why massage benefits those who have an active lifestyle:

  1. Massage increases your range of motion and improves your flexibility.

    Stretching on your own is oftentimes not enough to loosen tight muscles and increase your range of motion.

    I incorporate passive stretching into a massage session and have noticed a difference in my clients’ range of motion and flexibility after only a few treatments.

  2. Massage speeds up recovery time

    Receiving massage immediately after a strenuous workout helps to rebuild muscle tissue and reduce muscle tension.
    One client said that she was able to work harder and faster than her teammates and credited it to her weekly massage sessions.

  3. Massage prevents injury

    Incorporating massage into your weekly, bi-weekly, or even monthly routine helps to reduce muscle inflammation. Less inflammation means less risk for injury.

These are only a few of the physical advantages of receiving consistent bodywork. Everyone has their own reasons and intentions for coming in for massage treatments. I see my clients as individuals, each with their own reasons for seeking support for their healing.

I am accepting new clients Thursdays and Saturdays (and adhering to COVID-19 protocols) now in Easthampton. Visit my services page to book, or drop me an email if you have any questions.
