What are your thoughts on Myfascial Release techniques (which you can perform) vs. massages for your clients. I saw an interesting article (see link) discussing the benefits of massages, but can they be over rated for your clients who train on a consistent basis.
I don’t see it as an either/or.
As a MELT instructor, I teach my clients to hydrate and care for their own tissues. Done before massage, it allows the therapist to get deeper into tissue, quicker, with less pain to the client. Done after massage, it prolongs the benefits achieved during the massage.
I cross-refer to several massage therapists and teach MELT workshops at a wellness studio where massage, MELT, yoga, and acupuncture all cross-refer.
