During the first week of the Olympics, we saw swimmers Ryan Lochte and Missy Franklin with just minutes to recover in the diving pool between races, going through their routine, and then win medals in the next race.
The water polo team said they’d be flushing their bodies to prepare for the next game, to get the lactic acid out of their muscles. And we all know how much training is done, to improve performance and avoid injuries.
Whether you are an elite athlete in the Olympics or just like to have a good time without pain and agony, Dave’s Massage Works knows therapeutic and sports massage can be a beneficial part of your regular exercise routine.
Sure, a therapeutic massage feels good, but it also helps to release tight muscles which speeds muscle-recovery and improves your next performance – whether that next event is moments away, or next weekend. Regular sports massage therapy keeps your muscles in good working order, and helps to prevent injuries when combined with good practices for warming up, stretching, and cool downs.
So get out there, play hard, have fun – and be sure to schedule regular therapeutic massages to keep that body in pain-free motion!
