Mobility Massage... Why you should let us stretch you?

Mobility Massage consists of Passive, Active, and Resisted stretch therapy techniques, this barefoot massage technique allows the Massage Therapist to stand on a massage table and maneuver clients’ limbs with their feet, using the strong muscles of their legs and hips. We hold onto overhead bars and lean into our suspended support straps for balance and leverage as we lift, bend, and twist you into stretches to increase flexibility and range of motion in the muscles and joints. We also compress or restrict your compensating body parts down into a neutral alignment while creating various ranges of motion throughout all major joints in the body. Barefoot Massage Therapists can observe movement patterns and queue the client into resisted actions to help build joint stability, and encourage their interoceptive awareness during passive fascial stretching and proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation.

Here are some of the potential benefits of stretch massage to consider when choosing if Mobility Massage Sessions are right for you:

  • Improved flexibility: Stretch massage can help improve your flexibility by elongating your muscles and increasing their range of motion. This can also help reduce muscle stiffness and soreness.

  • Improved posture: Stretch massage can help improve your posture by correcting muscle imbalances and reducing muscle tension in areas like the shoulders and back.

  • Reduced muscle tension: Stretch massage can help reduce muscle tension by promoting relaxation and improving blood flow to the muscles.

  • Reduced stress: Stretch massage can help reduce stress by promoting relaxation and reducing muscle tension, which can help ease feelings of anxiety and promote a sense of well-being.

  • Increased range of motion: Mobility massage can help improve joint mobility by loosening up tight muscles and connective tissues that can limit movement.

  • Improved circulation: Mobility massage can help improve circulation by promoting blood flow to the muscles and joints, which can help reduce inflammation and promote healing.

  • Increased body awareness: Mobility massage can help improve body awareness by helping patients become more in tune with their bodies and the movements they are capable of.

  • Reduced pain: By reducing muscle tension and improving joint mobility, mobility massage can help reduce pain in areas such as the back, shoulders, and hips.

  • Improved athletic performance: By improving flexibility and reducing muscle tension, stretch massage can help improve athletic performance by increasing the range of motion and reducing the risk of injury.

Mobility massage can be a great way to improve joint mobility, reduce pain, and improve athletic performance and recovery. However, it's important to talk to your massage therapist or healthcare provider about any specific concerns or medical conditions you may have before beginning any type of massage therapy. Could you use all of the above? Let us STRETCH you... Book your session today.
