Massage therapy offered at our office provides multiple benefits. People have used it as a form of relaxation, muscle tension release, and healing for many years. At Active Body Sculpt, we use it to enhance the benefits of Light Lipo.

Each Type of Massage Offers Different Benefitsmassage therapy

The general benefits of all massages we perform in-office include:

  • Reduced inflammation causing muscle pain, headaches, stress, and joint pain
  • Improved vascular circulation
  • Increased flexibility in joints
  • Alleviated negative effects of aging
  • Reduced fatigue
  • Increased range of motion

Sports massage

Our sports massages combine various massage therapy techniques to enhance performance and recovery related to athletic activity. Any successful sports training program involves massage to decrease the risk of injuries to muscles and joints and to improve performance. If performed after physical exercise, a sports massage will work to remove lactic acid that builds up in the muscles. It also restores strength and stability to the muscles being used.

Deep tissue massage

The target purpose of deep tissue massage therapy is to alleviate muscle spasms and trigger points deep in the muscle tissue. Therapists focus on specific muscles of a muscle group to access deeper layers of soft tissue. This type of massage therapy uses slower motions to enhance the deep fibers of the muscles.

Therapeutic stretching massage

Lengthening and strengthening the damaged muscle fibers after physical fitness is the goal of a therapeutic stretching massage. It increases the muscle length and increases your range of motion. Doing so works to decrease muscle strains and reduce the risk of ligament damage during exercise. This massage therapy is designed to help muscles heal properly after physical stress.
