What is Fitness-Rehab?
A bridge between Rehab and Fitness Training, Fitness Rehab is a corrective exercise, core training and mobility development program based upon a comprehensive assessment and tailored to enable clients seeking to eliminate chronic injury and athletes seeking to move better to achieve their goals in a safe and effective manner.
In conjunction with massage therapy, We provide you the tools and education to perform self-maintenance in order to support you in a lifetime of fitness.
How does massage therapy and corrective exercise work together?
Both massage therapy and corrective exercise are vital to eliminating pain and ensuring it doesn’t return. Imagine you have a sore shoulder or a stiff lower back that feels great after massage but soon tightens up again as you go throughout your week.
Often, this tightness is the result of a muscular imbalance or a neurological “tightening” as the body’s response to the way we move. After the muscle is released through massage, the next step to eliminating this problem is to re-train the body to move more efficiently through specialized corrective exercise.
Typically, clients will be given 1-3 pieces of homework during the week ad their “correctives” to work on this specific issue. With each week, they will begin to notice less pain and improve function of this area.
Moreover, we teach you the basic tools to maintain the effects of massage longer to ensure we maximize it’s benefits.
