Corrective Exercise & Massage Therapy
Active lifestyles, daily behaviors (prolonged sitting, excessive typing, carrying children), and even sleep habits can add stress to the body’s musculature, often creating tightness in some muscles groups and excessive length and weakness in their overworked counterparts. If this imbalance is maintained over time, the body will compensate in ways that often increase pain and reduce functionality.
Massage Therapy to relax is great as a stress reducer, but there is another side to bodywork, and Life Moves practitioners specialize in assessing and addressing the root cause of pain due to soft-tissue dysfunction. If part of that root cause is muscular imbalance, we will likely recommend a Massage Session with Corrective Exercise. Our Massage Therapists who are also certified Corrective Exercise Specialists can return the muscle tissue to a healthy state and then utilize strategic strengthening and stretching to help keep pain away.
This process is similar to but not a replacement for Physical Therapy. We will assess and address mild to moderate imbalances and injuries. For severe injuries in which the client is not cleared for general workout, we will be happy to recommend our favorite Physical Therapists.
