Flex Sports Massage
SPORTS MASSAGE THERAPY Sports Massage Therapy is Flex’s specialty massage. Our therapists understand athletic training and competition at both the professional level and for everyday use. By incorporating stretch therapy, joint mobilization and deep tissue techniques, sports massage can help prevent injury, help heal existing injury, and improve overall performance.
DEEP TISSUE THERAPY
Deep Tissue Therapy allows the blood and oxygen to circulate properly, releases toxins, and releases muscle tension. During this massage, trigger point therapy and structural integration is also incorporated to eliminate pain and stiffness to re-educate muscles into pain-free living.
Medi-Cupping is a Chinese therapy that improves circulation by allowing fresh blood flow to the treated area and allows for overall better healing throughout the nervous system.
ACTIVE ISOLATED STRETCHING (AIS)
The AIS method of muscle lengthening and fascial release is a type of Athletic Stretching Technique that provides effective, dynamic, facilitated stretching of major muscle groups, but more importantly, AIS provides functional and physiological restoration of superficial and deep fascial planes.
Kinesio Taping is a technique used to give support and stability to your joints and muscles without affecting circulation and range of motion. It is used for preventative maintenance, edema and pain management and is based on the body's own natural healing process. Used by athletes around the world.
More about Medi-Cupping
VacuTherapies provide a wonderful bridge to the medical community, with special applications for pre- and post-surgery conditions, chiropractic and orthopedic work, conditions associated with Diabetes, Parkinson’s, Fibromyalgia, and much more. Results are fast and comfortable for the client and practitioner, and noticeably impressive to medical professionals.
One of the most amazing aspects of this technique is the “separation” that the vacuum produces in tissue layers. This enables water absorption and renewed blood flow to undernourished and dehydrated tissue as well as the elimination of old waste and congestion.
Along with the substantial health benefits of clearing old debris, the use of suction is invaluable in releasing soft tissue, scars and restricted fascia. Sports professionals are benefiting from the ease of recovery from injury or surgery and an increase in athletic performance, and major league sports teams are utilizing the therapy.
MediCupping™ uses a machine to create the suction and pumping movements that are normally done with manual vacuum pistols, to create a soothing, consistent and effective treatment without strain on the therapist or client. As an adjunct therapy to chiropractic manipulations, medical protocols and surgical recovery, MediCupping™ therapy accelerates patient progress … leading to happy clients!
