During your sports massage, your therapist will use five main strokes:
Sports massage can be helpful to athletes pre and post-event, with different goals in mind. Pre-event sports massages are used to help the body prepare for upcoming physical activity by:
Activates and stretches muscles, simultaneously toning and releasing tension for better overall performance.
Lowers cortisol levels and increases oxytocin, the happiness hormone, to ease pre-event jitters.
Causes an increase in oxygen and blood flow to the muscles, making them less likely to weaken and fatigue.
Post-event sports massages are a great tool to support recovery. They aid the body by:
Relieves tight muscles, resulting in decreased muscle soreness and tightness.
Assists in the healing of damaged muscle fibers by increasing blood circulation, supplying oxygen and abundant nutrients to the damaged muscles.
Allows athletes time to relax and unwind and produces feel-good hormones.
My co-worker Rey recommended this app. I was new to LA and didn`t know many places for massage so I simply downloaded the app and got Sara as my provider. She came on time, we had a wonderful session for a good 2 hours and I felt super relaxed. I STRONGLY recommend BigToe app to EVERYONE. This on-demand massage service is truly outstanding.
Imagine going to Los Angeles and getting an in-room massage and then coming back to New York and using the same app... These guys have spoiled me big time and I`m loving it...the therapists on the app are punctual and skillful
As a beginner, I found this app and it is so easy to navigate. Each step in the scheduling of a massage session was so clear and precise. I believe everyone should use this massage at home service especially in LA where every other subscription cost more than your expectation. The therapist was truly awesome in so many ways and assured me that I am in good hands.
