Sports massage for runners
Does it help?
There is some good evidence that massage improves circulation, lymphatic flow and pain levels pre and post run.
More importantly, I ran a terrible half marathon on Sunday. The massage that my kind physiotherapy colleagues in Wandsworth gave me was a killer but it worked. I was immediately able to get down the stairs easily. So forget about the evidence, here’s a testimonial – sports massage is a really helpful tool for keeping you lithe and limbered up. Maybe even injury free.
Give it a go!
