Massage therapists at The Muscle Repair Shop go beyond the borders of basic massage to educate clients about their muscles and help assuage symptoms of chronic pain. During deep-tissue treatments, therapists warm up muscles with gliding effleurage before subjecting deep-seated tension to intense pressure, focused massage strokes, and the stress-relieving power of laughter. The massage boosts circulation and lymphatic drainage, detoxifying ailing muscles to help prevent spasms and aches. In addition to massage, the shop’s trained therapists conduct active isolated stretching, an exercise that helps loosen taut muscles for greater range of motion while decreasing the chance of injury. Each stretch lasts two–three seconds, about as long as it takes for a muscle to forget that it was tense in the first place.
The Muscle Repair Shop
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.
