Matrix Fitness Club’s senior Personal Trainer, Group Fitness Director, Group Fitness Instructor and Healing Arts Practitioner, Luz Milagros Arpino, has added to her skill set a license in massage therapy.
Massage therapy is probably the most studied, non-drug
modality that provides benefit for so many conditions that it seems
inexplicable that it is not added to anyone’s calendar on a regular basis. No
longer is massage considered a luxury, but a much needed tool for improving
your physical and mental functioning to get the best out of your workouts. Ask
elite athletes how important massage therapy is for their recovery and enhanced
performance and they will probably put it right behind workouts and proper
nutrition. Here are just a few exercise related benefits of regular massage.
Massage therapy helps to reduce muscle tension
Enhance exercise performance
Improve range of motion
Lower blood pressure
Manage low back pain
Promotes better sleep
Ease symptoms of depression
Help relieve symptoms of chronic neck pain
Unlike a spa treatment, our massage therapist Luz does not
offer a one size fits all menu. Spas usually have assorted prices for Swedish,
Sports, Deep Tissue, etc. Luz
understands that your shoulders may need cupping, your hamstrings may need deep
tissue, your neck may need stretching and tension release, but your feet might
just need pampering. She may employ a variety of techniques in one session and
there is no extra charge for your personal prescription.
Reach out to Luz for an appointment and reap the benefits in
your exercise performance and overall well-being.
There are many symptoms and illnesses that can benefit from
massage therapy that can be researched through the American Massage Therapy
