Soft tissue mobility is one of the core requirements for a properly functioning body.
Modern day lifestyles put a lot of stress on our bodies and this can then affect how our muscles function. Auto accidents, extended hours sitting, computer work, driving, repetitive motions, relationship stresses, to much sugar, not enough water, are just some of the stresses that our body goes through that cause problems to occur.
Everyone of every age needs to move their bodies through their full range of motion.
If you ever look at a young child playing we see how they are able to go into a full squat to pick something up off the ground and it looks so easy.
Our bodies are designed to do that, but it has been so long since many of us have moved our bodies through these ranges of motion that it seizes up like a rusty old hinge. This problem will continue to get worse until we do something about it and get moving. We need to regain what was lost and not invent something new.
Massage therapy is a vital step in regaining what mobility we have lost. It addresses tight muscles, trigger points, soft tissue restriction, joint capsule restriction, joint movement dysfunction, decreased range of motion in joints, motor control problems, circulation issues, and lymphatic function.
The addition of a regular massage will help you to recover more quickly from injury, attain higher levels of performance, increase your capacity for strength and fitness, and the knowledge that you are adding to your long term health and quality of life.
