A Sports massage is beneficial for participants in an athletic event as they work to prepare the body, increase endurance and performance during an event, as well as aid the recovery from a previous sports injury before a race and to recover from post-marathon soreness after.
If you are working to recover from chronic pain in your legs, arms, shoulders or lower back before a race, marathon or even an obstacle course, a deep tissue massage may be for you. Deep tissue massages target tissue in specific areas deep within the ligaments, muscles and connective tissue 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 as a way to relax after your training exercises, as well as after a run to relax the muscles in your legs and lower back to reduce post-marathon stiffness, aches, and pains.
