Recover from your run
Summer is here, and you're probably spending more time outdoors being active. From muscle recovery to improved mood, there are many reasons to schedule a massage this time of year.
1. Athletes of all fitness levels can benefit from massage. Whether you're training for a marathon or joining a kickball team, studies show massage may potentially reduce muscle tension and stiffness, increase range of motion, decrease swelling and enhance athletic performance. In addition, drink plenty of water after your run to hydrate your body and take the time to stretch your muscles.
2. Boost your mood with massage therapy. July is Mental Health Month, and research indicates the symptoms of stress, anxiety and depression may be positively affected with massage.
