Massage Therapy Helps Summer Aches

Massage Therapy Helps Summer Aches

It’s the season for outside activities, and baseball, swimming, tennis, climbing and biking are just a sampling of the sports that can flare up shoulder or upper back tension.

One way to handle those stubborn knots is with massage therapy. While massage is often thought of a great way to find relaxation and feel great, it’s so much more than that. Targeting specific muscles of concern through massage can aid in relieving pain, tension and stiffness. This in turn can assist to prevent injury, increase range of motion and flexibility and re-activate muscle fibers to improve athletic performance.

Selecting the best therapist is as simple as shopping around and asking questions based on specific needs. Therapists are more than happy to describe their particular massage modality and areas of specialization. Finding the right massage therapist is important to improve success with maintaining good shoulder and upper back health and to keep the body in the game all summer long.
