Attention Doncaster Runners

Running season is just about getting underway! People are back in the gym, training for half and full marathons or are considering taking up a Couch- to-50k challenge!

For any type of runner, whether you run for a cause, a specific target or just casually, the repetitive nature of your feet hitting the pavement or treadmill can take a toll on your muscles and joints. But sports massage can help!

At Body Advance in Doncaster, one of my primary focuses for delivering sports massage therapy to any runner is alleviating muscle tension and tightness. The constant impact of running can lead to the development of knots and trigger points in muscles, hindering flexibility and causing discomfort. A targeted sports massage session can effectively release these knots, promoting better range of motion and reducing the risk of injury. Additionally, sports massage at Body Advance can aid in the prevention of injuries by improving circulation and promoting efficient nutrient delivery to muscles. The increased blood flow helps flush out metabolic waste products that accumulate during running, accelerating the recovery process.

Beyond the physical benefits, my treatments can also play a crucial role in mental and emotional well-being. I’ve found that a 30 minute massage can help reduce stress and anxiety in runners that I’ve treated in the past, allowing them to approach their training with a clear mind and focused determination.

In conclusion, sports massage isn't just a luxury for elite athletes; it's a valuable tool for runners of all levels. If you’re a runner in Doncaster, I would highly recommend incorporating regular sports massage into your routine! Drop me a call or a message, or arrange a consultation to get started!
