Why Work Assisted Stretching into Your Massage
Do your shoulders, or neck feel tight and cramped after sitting at a desk for hours? Are overly tight hamstrings making it hard to bend down and tie your shoes? Are you still nursing an old injury, like an ankle sprain, that makes it hard to walk longer distances without pain?
Stretching is a great way to keep the body limber, but not all of us are able to incorporate it into our daily lives. If a yoga class just doesn’t fit into your schedule, why not add some stretching to your massage treatment?
When combined with regular massage techniques, assisted stretching not only keeps your muscles supple, it helps your massage therapist work more effectively.
Stretch massage alleviates strain on your joints and has a slew of other benefits, including:
- Enhanced flexibility
- Improved posture
- Increased range of motion
- Better circulation
At Elements Massage, our therapists are trained in stretch massage and can help you access areas of the body you simply aren’t able to reach on your own.
Talk to your therapist about working assisted stretching into your next massage and experience the benefits for yourself.
