Are you running in the London Marathon? 

You probably have spent months training in the run up to the London Marathon and with it soon approaching it might be a good idea to start thinking about how to recover your body post marathon. Having a post marathon massage will certainly be beneficial and help aid in recovery, here’s why:

Reduces Soreness

With any type of rigorous exercise, it is inevitable that you will get DOMS  (Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness) afterwards. This will will most definitely be the case with completing a marathon. Having a massage will help to ease that soreness.

Reduces Swelling

Massage will help to alleviate swelling and increase the disposal of metabolic waste.

Promotes Healing

Massage has been shown to increase mitochondria within the body’s cells, and in turn helps the muscle to repair itself after intense exercise.

Relaxes Muscles

Massage will help to relax any tension within the muscles and soften the muscles, ligaments and tendons. Massage also reduces adhesions within the fascia (a lining between and within muscles) which can limit flexibility.

 

We would like to wish all London Marathon runners the best of luck on 22nd April!

 

We look forward to seeing you all for your post marathon massage.
