HOW-TO HACK: The Secret to Improving Your Workouts

Want to improve your race time, distance, lifting, or range of motion?  What’s keeping you from getting to the next level in your workouts?  While much of your exercise routine and athletic achievements can be accomplished with a positive attitude and a good support system, your muscles still need to perform the work.  Without proper care and maintenance, like a good car, your body can breakdown without notice and without access to “spare parts”.

Heavily exercised muscles may lose their capacity to relax, causing chronically tight, or “hypertonic” muscles, and loss of flexibility. Lack of flexibility is often linked to muscle soreness, and can predispose a person to injuries, especially muscle pulls and tears.  Blood flow through tight muscles is poor or “ischemia”, which also causes pain.

May we suggest peppering therapeutic massage into your workout schedule to keep your body performing as it should and to avoid poor form, tight muscles, and injury?   Massage helps the body recover from the stresses of strenuous exercise, and facilitates the rebuilding phase of conditioning. The physiological benefits of massage include improved blood and lymph circulation and muscle and general relaxation.  In turn, this leads to the removal of waste products and improved cell nutrition, greater elasticity of tissues, deactivation of trigger points, and faster healing of injuries.  It all adds up to relief from soreness and stiffness, better flexibility, and less potential for future injury.

Get a Complimentary Deluxe Eye Treatment* with any Signature Facial in July!

*Eye treatment must be received same day as facial.  Offer expires July 31 and may not be combined with other discounts or promotions.
