It’s the thick of marathon season, and as we get into longer distances, we have less and less spare time. But we need deep tissue work more than ever: this is when our muscles, fascia and ligaments begin to pay the price for all those miles.
Massage can play a critical roll in keeping muscles supple, improving flexibility and restoring range and posture, as well as preventing the fascial adhesions that cause injuries. Weekly or every-other-week sessions should be as much a part of a training program as stretching or weights
A 30-minute flush can loosen up the muscles — we’ll work on the low back, feet, calves, IT band and hamstrings to get the lactic acid out. We’ll also be able to do detailed work if we find issues. An hour-long session will let us more thoroughly address problem areas, relieving tough spots with myofascial release. It’s ideal to come in the day before a rest day so your body can recover and maximize the benefits of the massage.
Massage is a great preventative tool — come see us before the road takes it toll on you.
