Before the heat of the Arizona summer sets in, you may be trying to cram in your outdoor activities and that includes cycling. If you are an avid biker, routinely hitting the trails before the mercury climbs, you need us on your team. Regular massage sessions are a great way to aid your body in recovering post-ride, keeping you limber and ready to hit the road (or trail) next.
If you are new to the therapeutic powers of massage, let us fill you in. The top modalities that address cycling’s most used muscle groups include:
- Deep Tissue
For those that train hard, deep tissue is a form of specialized massage that targets deep-seated muscles. Through the application of pressure and cross-grain movements, this style of massage can pinpoint areas of tension and knots to provide release.
This gentle form of massage, Swedish massage is best known for its long muscle strokes accompanied by light tapping, kneading, and friction-producing movements. An excellent method of massage to stimulate circulation, jumpstart recovery and re-energize the body.
Sports massage carries broad applications for a variety of aches and pains. With the ability to focus on removing lactic acid buildup and working through the post-ride stiffness, this massage is great for the leg fatigue that frequently plagues cyclists.
