Your body needs to be in excellent physical condition for you to be able to complete a marathon, let alone finish with a time that you believe reflects your true capabilities. That is why you need to train incredibly hard to get your body used to the distance and the impact associated with road marathons.

If your London best sports massage is the home to a number of sports massage clinics, where the treatments on offer act as the perfect companion to your training because they help to condition your muscles. Training for a marathon is not just about putting in the hours out on the road. You also need to put in the hours on the massage treatment table so that your body is in perfect shape for the race.

Although they are used widely by marathon runners to help them to avoid injury and overcome problems that arise from shin and knee pain during training, Ben Pianese’s combination of massage techniques also help to enhance your performance.

Many athletes swear by the power of massage to keep their muscles in perfect condition so that they are ready to face the prospect of a race with confidence.

Whatever your motives for taking part in a marathon, sports massage can help you to achieve your goal.

Healthy circulatory system for maximum potential

You run around a track, park or maybe your garden; but how do you improve circulation? How can you improve circulation within the body to enhance your performance, avoiding sports injury and give you stamina? You would be surprised that so many necessary elements need to keep moving, a healthy circulatory system means blood, hormones, water (lymph) and gases are passed through the body; healthy nutrients.

So you are running a marathon and for some reason, you feel like you are carrying more than your body weight, what can possibly cause this feeling? Well, you are not the only one who needs to feel like you are running with ease.

The internal fluids of the body such as blood and water need to run fluently in order for the engine that is your body to reach its maximum potential.

The feeling of lethargy and fatigue that you experience is due to the Lymphatic system being blocked, this is an obstacle that can be removed with a gentle nudge in the right direction. Sports massage should be part of any runner’s fitness program, sounds painful I hear you ask but actually this massage treatment is a means of staying on the right track and will work wonders for you.

Sports Massage help flush out toxins and aid detoxification

So sports massage works? The aim is to move the Lymph (water) through the Lymph nodes (glands) in order to release a build-up of toxins. These toxins can cause bacteria and can weaken your immune system too! It’s a great way of loosening and disposal of fatty deposits…this could be the reason for the feeling of fatigue that you are experiencing.

Marathon runners or indeed anyone who takes part in any physical activity needs to stay ahead. As the winter months draw in, we are more susceptible to colds and flu which can, of course, hold you back. Sports massage helps to strengthen your inner body and immune system enabling you to run and work out in all weather conditions.

Most of us will experience swollen glands; in particular, the glands connected to the ear and throat, this is when you should consult your doctor. However, there are glands within the body that are not visible to us so you will be unaware that there could be a problem. Marathons runners can feel physical pain and injury if you have pulled or torn a muscle, the pain is an indication that something isn’t quite right.

The inner feeling that can cause mental pain and confusion is something that isn’t easy to work out. This is an indication that perhaps the body’s circulatory system is not flowing in its natural rhythm.
