Andy is exactly the kind of guy you need in your life. He is a regular at Urban Base Fitness for Athlete recovery Mondays providing massage to our clients as part of their membership.

Andy believes in regular maintenance massage, addressing any injuries or imbalances through massage, stretching and strengthening. 

A massage helps to reduce muscle tightness by improving muscle elasticity. Muscle elasticity improves as temperature increases due to an increase in blood flow. Improving muscle elasticity increases range of movement of a muscle as well as allowing muscle relaxation. Increasing range of movement and relaxation of a muscle reduces muscle tightness and therefore reduces chances of injury and improves performance.
