Let Me Design a Neuromuscular Massage Program to Enhance Your Fitness Training

Every fitness enthusiast has a different routine for training, which can mean you need a different focus in your neuromuscular massage.

A person who trains in tennis, for example, may need to relieve the tightness or tension in the upper shoulders used repeatedly for tennis.

A long-distance runner may require more overall body work than a bodybuilder who is concentrating his/her workouts to sculpt a specific muscle group.

If you’re a fitness enthusiast, let me design a neuromuscular massage program to help your training.

If You’re Getting Physical Therapy, You Should Also Get Neuromuscular Massage

If you’ve been injured, or have disabling pain in your lower back or elsewhere, or joints from arthritis, neuromuscular massage can help restore felxibility to the tissues, build strength in injured tissues, help your balance and coordination, and extend range of motion.

Physical therapy and neuromuscular massage are good complementary therapies.

Hand and Wrist Stretches for Kids at School and People Who Work at Desks

Straighten your arm in front of you with your palm up. Use the other hand to gently press your fingers down toward the ground in a slow gentle stretch. Repeat on the other hand. Then, straighten your arm in front of you with your palm down. Use the other hand to slowly bend your fingers back toward your body stretching your wrist. Repeat on the other hand.

If You Get Cold at the Stadium, Exercise These Muscles

If you get cold sitting at the stadium watching a game, get your big muscle groups working to warm you up.

Abdominal circles – squeeze your lower abdominal muscles and hold for 3 seconds, then your right abs, then your upper abs, then your left. Repeat that circle 5 times.

Calves Lifts – Lift your legs up so that you’re on the balls of your feet, hold for 10 seconds and release. Repeat 5 times.

Butt and Thigh Squeezes – squeeze your buns and hold for 5 seconds, then squeeze your thighs and hold for 5 seconds. Repeat 5 times.

Exercises for Hunters Who Must Sit and Wait

Fighter pilots face the same body stresses that hunters do when they have to remain still for long periods of time. Exercising your large muscles will help reduce stiffness and help keep you warm. Here are a few exercises you can do without any sudden motion.

Spinal twist – Inhale and sit up tall. Twist as far as you can comfortably to the left, exhale, and remain in that position for 5 gentle breaths, then switch sides.

Shoulder shrugs – Inhale and lift your shoulders up toward your ears, then squeeze them straight back. Exhale and squeeze your shoulder blades together and let your shoulders come back down. Inhale and squeeze your elbows toward each other in back. Exhale, and relax.

Back release – cross one ankle over the other thigh, exhale and lean forward over your legs. Hold for five breaths, exhale and put your foot back down. Repeat with the other leg.
