Sport Massage as part of your training and wellbeing

The running season is well under way and maybe you have been busy training for this weeks Reading half marathon?

Hopefully your training has gone to plan, having slowly increased your mileage week by week and having hit your longest run you have tapered down in preparation for the half marathon.

Sports massage is a fantastic way to aid your training; it can help you recover between training sessions by increasing blood flow to the muscles, improving flexibility, increasing range of movement and decreasing muscle stiffness. This all helps to reduce recovery time and prevent injury, meaning that you can train more effectively and therefore improve your performance.

 

You have already put in weeks of gruelling training battling through the relentless rain and flooding, don’t let a late injury ruin all that hard work you have put in, so why not book in to see a Sports & Remedial Massage Therapist today or why not book yourself in for a post event sports massage to help recover those achy legs after the race?

Whatever event you are training for throughout the year Sports massage can help you, for further information or advice please speak to one of our therapists.
