The Muscle Repair Shop takes a two-pronged approach to preventing chronic pain: treatment and education. Through deep-tissue massages, strength training, and active isolated stretching—stretches held for two–three seconds that enhance range of motion—highly trained staff members can sap tension from ailing physiques. They go beyond these services, however, to tutor clients on muscle function and popular misconceptions, such as the belief that biceps should be watered weekly. By outlining anatomical facts, they hope to prevent guests from seeking needless medical treatments or surgeries. In conjunction with muscular enlightenment, healthy recipes from registered dietitian and certified diabetes educator Susan Phelps guide bodies toward holistic wellness.
