Massage is an essential ingredient to enhancing body function, aiding the healing process and promoting relaxation and well-being. The benefits: • Improving circulation by stimulating blood supply. • Allowing toxins in the muscles to be removed and toning. • Relaxing muscles which improves joint mobility • Removing fascia restrictions, trigger points which cause referred pain and reducing mobility and strength within the muscle. Sports Massage will include swifter strokes with a combination of various modalities to improve function and get you back into your chosen activity with optimal function. Myofascial release – The goal of myofascial release is to release fascia restriction and restore its tissue, improve mobility and reduce injury risk. Trigger Point Therapy is a form in which direct pressure is applied to specified points on tender muscle tissue to bring about reduction in muscle tension and pain relief. Clients receiving regular massage respond with lowered respiratory rate, lowered blood pressure readings, lowered pain, and an increase in range of movement with a marked increase in health and well being.
reformer pilates with charell in our studio
The reformer offers all the famous benefits of Pilates including overall strength, flexibility, coordination, and balance. The reformer is large enough to accommodate full-range motion which is wonderful for increasing flexibility while building strength. The instability of a rolling carriage with the springs set at different levels of resistance provides all kinds of stability challenges that develop core strength and promote better balance. For example, having less of the body on the carriage is one of the ways Pilates exercises get harder. It means more body weight has to be supported by the practitioner, and the body and machine have to be controlled even more from the core. Paradoxically, when the springs are on a lighter setting, some exercises are more challenging for the core because it has to work harder to control and stabilize the movement. The stronger core, the better the balance, posture, and overall well-being. Exercising with the reformer is possible for anyone, at any level of fitness. It’s no wonder the full name of the reformer is the Universal Reformer.
