A Sports massage is beneficial for participants in an athletic event as they work to prepare the body. It helps increase endurance and performance during an event. Also, it’s a beneficial aid for recovery from a previous sports injury. What’s more, it can help before a race. Afterwards, it can help you recover from post-marathon soreness.
Are you working to recover from chronic pain in your legs, arms, shoulders or lower back before a race, marathon or even an obstacle course? If so, a deep tissue massage may be for you. Deep tissue massages target tissue in specific areas deep within the ligaments, muscles and connective tissue. The goal is to relieve pain and restore a patient’s movement in a particular area of the body.
A Swedish massage is great for before a race. It’s a great way to relax after your training exercises, as well as after a run. Swedish massage relaxes the muscles in your legs and lower back. Thus, it reduces post-marathon stiffness, aches, and pains.
