Deep Tissue Massage for Runners

Massage and running go hand in hand. Therapeutic massage works to elongate the muscles, relieve muscle tightness, restore joint range of motion and improves circulation. It helps to improve your flexibility and reduce your risk of injury, as well as deliver a whole host of other benefits. These effects are significant if you are looking for ways to recover faster, prevent injuries and improve performance.

Deep Tissue Massage – one of the most popular massages among runners – is designed to be corrective to soft tissue and includes following benefits:

1. Improves the effectiveness of the circulatory system. This system is responsible for oxygen transfer, nutrient delivery, and waste removal at the cellular level.
2. Dilates blood vessels which promotes circulation and lowers blood pressure
3. Assists venous blood flow
4. Promotes rapid removal of metabolic waste products
5. Improves the oxygen carrying capacity of red blood cell
6. Improves pulmonary function by loosening tight respiratory muscles
7. Reduces muscle soreness and fatigue
8. Increases/restores joint range of motion
9. Restores posture and gait
10. Improves connective tissue healing

The most important goal is to set a regular schedule for your massages. It’s important to note that regular repetitive sessions let you increase effects and benefits of massage. Look at your training schedule and highlight the dates of long runs and key workouts. If possible, schedule your massages around these targeted dates. Pre-Workout best to be schedules 2 days before while Post-Workout massage should be scheduled 3-5 days after when muscles are no longer sore to the touch.

After assessing your training schedule and available time, plan your massage treatments accordingly.

And always remember between massages to drink lots of water, stretch after your runs and eat clean healthy foods to extend the life of your massages.
