Massage For Runners

 

  • Does massage really help flush lactic acid?

  • What's this fascia stuff and how can massage affect it?

  • Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS): Massage to the rescue!

"Regular massage can boost recovery and be a valuable training tool to help you run your best. 'Muscle stiffness can throw off your gait, which leads to problems over time,' Sefton says. 'And by getting a sense for how your body should feel when everything is in balance, you're more likely to notice small issues before they turn into chronic problems.' Even beginning runners can benefit from massage, because alleviating the soreness that comes with starting a new sport makes people more likely to stick with it.'"
