What Do You Think?

When you hear the term "sports massage" what do you usually think? Do you think of professional athletes or regular runners with BIG salaries being treated to stay competitive?

Well, while most professional sports teams employ massage therapist as part of their training and medical staffs, the fact is that sports massage can benefit everyone (yes; that means you, too!) from the marathoner to the busy mom who simply wants to keep up with her energetic toddler.

According to the American Massage Therapy Association sports massage can reduce muscle tension, help athletes monitor muscle tone, promote relaxation, increase range of motion, decrease muscle stiffness, delay the onset of muscle soreness, reduce swelling and aid in recovery from injury.

We could all benefit from that. Whether you are a world-class athlete or a weekend runner, it's time to incorporate regular sports massage into your “game-of-life” plan for better health.

As always – Enjoy Your Life!
