What Is Sports and Pliability Massage?
It primes your muscles to absorb and disperse forces — in both sport and daily life — so you can achieve more and avoid injury.
Sports and Pliability Massage revolutionizes an athlete’s journey, and can benefit everyone. Sports and Pliability Massage work turns muscles into "soft" and resilient muscles. Being pliable isn’t muscle tissue that is squishy to the touch. It’s muscle tissue that’s adaptable to the demands placed on the muscle.
Simply put, it gets your body to 100 percent muscle pump function, and keeps it there over time — which is a huge part of achieving sustained peak performance.
When muscles retain their optimal function and range of motion—a full contraction and a full relaxation—you build resilience to injury and perform at your best. During the muscle work, it’s important to put the body through motion by rhythmically contracting and relaxing the muscle being worked on. This is what really enables that positive trauma that makes a lasting change in the muscle.
All of this together results in a lengthened and "softened" muscle that’s very functional. Our coaches at UWAT can deliver the best treatment via hands-on body work, but you can do it at home, too.
