People who are focused on overall fitness and wellness need ongoing massage treatments to keep their bodies in optimal condition. This is especially true with athletes.
Athletic Massage can be either recovery based (at the time of an injury) or preventative (weekly or biweekly depending on how intense training is and what the clients level of tension is prior to massage)
The benefits of Athletic or Sports Massage have been well documented over the years. A 2013 study in Health and Fitness Magazine found the following benefits of Athletic Massage:
- Reduce muscle tension
- Help athletes monitor muscle tone
- Promote relaxation
- Increase range of motion
- Decrease muscle stiffness and soreness after exercise
- Enhance athletic performance
- Help prevent injuries when massage is received regularly
Some of Rebecca’s clients have also noted that their old injuries do not affect their current training, they experience increased healing time and they enjoy the emotional support she provides as together they celebrate each milestone.
