It is important be healthy and take care of your body. Two things most people think of when discussing a healthy lifestyle is their diet and fitness routine. These things are both important parts of living a healthy life, but how does massage fit in?
If you plan on getting a massage pre-workout, it is suggested that you go for a light massage. A light massage helps warm up the muscles and makes them more flexible. However, if you plan on working out after a deep tissue massage, you might want to think again. This can lead to increased soreness, and it can inhibit the effectiveness of the tissue work done during your massage.
There are five major benefits to post-workout massages:
Play like the pros and feel like a pro. Incorporating massage into your golfing routine can help you have the golf score of a professional and will have you enjoying every hole on the course. But how is this possible?
It is impossible to have smooth, strong swings without having relaxed and flexible muscles. Massage helps golfers with their game by increasing blood circulation through their muscles, which helps loosen tight muscles so you can have a steady swing during your game. Each type of swing uses different muscles. So prior to a sports massage it is important to have your massage therapist perform a range of motions test to gain a better understanding of specific focus areas. Make sure to tell your massage therapist what type of swing you experience any kind of tightness or pain. This will give them an idea of what type of range test to do and what type of massage to use.
It is very important to find a qualified massage therapist that is certified and as specific credentials. Before scheduling your sports massage appointment, make sure to ask them about their qualifications, types of training, and what type of massage techniques they will use to best fit your needs. Living Touch Massage prides themselves on maintaining all certifications and learning the best way to help their clients. Feel free to contact Living Touch Massage to ask any questions or to schedule an appointment.

Muscle tension happens when muscles stay semi-contracted for a period of time. This can cause back pain, neck pain, and headaches too. An easy way to relieve muscle tension is to do a cool down after you work out. For quick relief try these common stretches that our good friends at Health.com suggest. Some stretches may be better for you depending on the work out and specific muscle groups exercised. If you are looking for longer lasting relief, Living Touch Massage offers full body deep tissue massage in a variety of lengths.
Let Living Touch Massage help you to remember that taking care of your body doesn’t only mean going to the gym and eating right. Properly taking care of your body after you work out is just as important as taking precautions while at the gym.
