Stretching Massage and Stretching Therapy

Why you should consider adding assisted stretching to your massage therapy sessions

Do your tight hamstrings make it difficult for you to tie your shoes while bending over? Are you like me and are still nursing an old ankle injury from years ago? If you work a desk job, you are no stranger to the tight and cramped feeling in your neck and shoulders. There are many ways our bodies begin to feel tight and tied up, making it hard to do the activities we once easily accomplished.

Keeping your body limber with stretching is not very hard, and it makes us feel nice, but not all of us have the time or ability to incorporate it into our daily schedules. If you don't have time for a regular yoga class, why not visit Massage Therapy Center of Sylvania for Stretching Therapy during your massage treatment?

When combined with regular massage techniques, assisted stretching not only keeps your muscles supple, it helps your massage therapist work more effectively. 

Stretch massage alleviates strain on your joints and has a slew of other benefits, including: 

  • Enhanced flexibility

  • Improved posture

  • Increased range of motion

  • Better circulation

Tonya at Massage Therapy Center of Sylvania is a Licensed Massage Therapist and is trained in stretch massage and can help you access areas of the body you simply aren’t able to reach on your own. 

Talk to us today about working assisted stretching into your next massage and experience the benefits for yourself! Call 419-705-4994 or email
