Massage is one of the best tools for recovery of worked muscle tissues and your whole body systems. Just as nutrition and hydration are important in that first hour following your hard work, massage implemented soon – within 1-2 hours post athletic event – can work wonders.
- Here’s a suggested plan: runners schedule their massage, typically a 90 minute session for the thorough deep tissue application on the total body. Many times this is the IT band, calves and feet.
- The session is scheduled very soon after they anticipate completion of the event. This is a prime time to get the circulation jump started, work the tissues deeply to release the toxins and move them out of the circulatory, lymphatic system quickly and efficiently.
- The goal result: No reported pain or aches the day following the event!! I have runners tell me they have never felt so good the day after as they did when they scheduled their 90 minute massage session for this 1 to 2 hour window following the event. They simply replenish with liquid whole foods nutrition on their way to my office. Water before and after massage. Lots of it!
