The difference between Therapeutic Massage & Relaxation Massage
At CORE Rob’s main goal is to help you achieve your peak physical performance goals. Because of this he utilizes Therapeutic Massage rather than Relaxation Massage when helping our clients to achieve their fitness goals.
He believes that Relaxation Massage certainly has its benefits, but relaxation massage does not do enough to help unlock fitness potential, support physical gains or help prevent injury. Rob chooses to treat his clients with therapeutic massage because it supports our mission to help his clients achieve their fitness goals and addresses underlying physical factors that add to mental and emotional stress.
Benefits of Therapeutic Massage:
- Improves circulation which increases nutrient delivery and waste removal
- Breaks down scar tissue and adhesions
- Improves elasticity of fascia and connective tissue around muscles
- Re-aligns muscle fibers to increase flexibility and range of motion, thus decreasing muscle tension
- Treats muscle imbalances that cause nerve impingement that are directly related to better posture and performance
A person whose body can recover faster from the rigors of work-life, strenuous exercise and injury can spend more time enjoying life and recreation. To achieve the highest level of physical fitness, a person’s body must be able to maintain strength, muscle integrity and proper posture. Often through intense activity, repetitive movements or injury, the body’s ability to function at its best is compromised. Chronically tense, overworked, or injured muscles and connective tissue restrict blood flow and fatigue the body which limits a person’s ability to reach their fitness and lifestyle goals. To give his clients the best chance to build strength, recover from strenuous activity and heal from injury, Rob utilizes therapeutic massage to keep muscles, tendons, ligaments, skin, joints, other connective tissue, as well as lymphatic vessels in optimal condition.
