What's Included in a Performance Recovery Session? Some combination of the below techniques.
Think of it like massage combined with stretch, performed in a highly targeted fashion.
Using a medical level knowledge of functional anatomy we are able to deliver highly targeted, efficient manual therapy to improve movement and desensitize sore muscles.
Hands on Mobility Work
In certain cases through our movement and mobility assessment, we may find that you have certain mobility trouble areas that may benefit from periodic hands on mobility work.
In these cases, hands on techniques like PNF stretching or hands on muscle activation may help balance neuromuscular tone and aid in improving mobility.
The basis for post exercise recovery is the normalization of tissue through the movement of nourishment and waste. Marc Pro is specifically designed to accelerate this process. The Marc Pro muscle conditioning device creates unique, strong, but completely non-fatiguing muscle contractions that set off a cascading series of physiologic events. We call this a Muscle Activated Recovery Cascade, or “MARC®” for short.
There are four main factors that regulate muscle recovery in adequately hydrated, nourished, and rested individuals: (1) the bringing in of nourishment and other supplies; (2) the removal of waste; (3) the production and release of myokines; and (4) the remodeling of the repaired tissue.
Only active recovery can accomplish all of these goals as muscle activation is the fundamental facilitator of the four processes noted above.
