The All Mighty Massage Therapy Etobicoke Loves!
In all my days as a professional athlete there is one pain I have always looked forward to: Deep Tissue Massages. This is massage therapy Etobicoke must have! After training days on end there are certain things that do not come undone through stretching or self massage. Knots and tight muscles are a way of life, yet through deep tissue massages there is relief amongst the tension.
By aligning the layers of muscle that have been misaligned through strenuous activity the connective tissue is allowed to heal properly. Knots (large build up of lactic acid) are dismantled stroke by stroke and due to the location of many of these build ups they can be quite painful when firm pressure is necessarily applied.
I can remember tensing up a great deal when the legs and extremely tight or “knotted” areas were worked on. I was instructed to relax, breathe deeply and try to “breathe” through the pain. The more you control the deep exhales, the easier it is for the masseuse to break the knot. By tensing you are in effect contracting the muscle-which is a natural defense to pain.
After many tears-ahem-excuse me, YEARS of
tennis and massages I was told the that the level of difficulty of self healing some of these muscles were next to impossible. By regularly seeing a Registered Massage Therapist, I was able to stay injury free and pain free, which allowed me to play better and spend more time on the court.
There have been many “fluff and buffs” in my time which, although they are relaxing they are almost useless for what my intentions of getting a massage would be. I want my body to operate more efficiently and I find the only way is to break down those knots in order to let the muscles function properly.
When searching for massage therapy Etobicoke is the first place I think of because I have had one of the most therapeutic experiences there. Desmond, my masseuse was extremely professional and knowledgeable when it came to explaining the healing process both during the massage and provided instructions for when I was in between massages. Etobicoke has many options when it comes to choosing a massage or registered massage therapist but if you want a sure thing, it’s Northwestern Massage Therapy.
