I’m a massage therapist so my endorsement of massage therapy as a valuable training and recovery tool should not come as a surprise. I’m no stellar athlete but regardless of my skill level, my body has felt beat up since we amped up training this winter. I can especially tell during swims when my arms and shoulders feel like lead that it is my turn to be the one on the massage table.
I stumbled upon this excellent article explaining the reason behind massage’s benefits for triathletes that I think is a good read for anyone seriously training for athletic events…whether your goal is to win or to finish. Go. Read it now. Then book your massage. 🙂
