Sports Method Pilates

Today Pilates is  being used by athletes involved in many different sports to help them enhance athletic performance, improve technique and prevent injuries. Pilates is a mind/body exercise method that is designed to give you strong and flexible muscles without adding bulk. It focuses on strengthening the core stabilizing muscles of the body. Pilates exercises work on increasing flexibility of the most often overused larger, tighter, major muscle groups. The philosophy behind Pilates is to retrain the mind and therefore the body, to use muscles more efficiently and save energy.  Jupiter Massage & Pilates 125 W Indiantown Rd #102 Jupiter, FL 33458 (561) 529 - 2093

Common Misconceptions about Massage

1) Massages are basically all the same.  False!  There are many different types of massage, and each has their own role.  Spa massage focuses on stress relief and helping to diminish general muscle soreness.  Sports massage is useful for athletes of any kind, from Olympians to weekend joggers, and helps to keep muscles and joints in top shape.  Massage for physical therapy is geared toward healing specific injuries and keeping bodies mobile while they recover. And of course there's deep tissue, aromatherapy, CBD therapy, reflexology,  Swedish, and many more too! 2) The effects of a massage are only temporary.    False! A massage therapist is able to help "retrain" muscles' memory to help reduce pain and stress on a body long after a session is complete.   3) One should feel sore the day after a massage, or it didn't "work."    False! Some people may feel a bit sore the day after a massage, especially if it was for deep tissue manipulation, B

Myofascial Massage

Myofascial massage is a manual therapy technique that relaxes the contracted muscles improving blood and lymphatic circulation by relaxing the stretch reflex in the muscles. It focuses on the pain believed to arise from the fascia (the tough membranes that wrap, connect, and support our muscles).
