You may already notice the increase in runners and cyclists about. You may even be one of them! The baseball diamonds, soccer pitches and the like with be getting busy soon too.
As our activity levels rise at this time of year, it is ever so important to keep ourselves in the best condition we can. Before, during and after exercise.
Eating well, staying hydrated, stretching and getting enough rest are all important components to our well being.
Of course taking advantage of a maintenance treatment plan with your Registered Massage Therapist is a great idea to help avoid injuries. Depending on the type of activity you take part in you could be looking at a simple every 4 to 6 week work-over to keep things loose OR perhaps a weekly/bi-weekly visit for more active athletes. Regardless, it is a superb way to avoid small issues before they become BIG issues. Tissue health is maintained, muscles are stretched, your body can operate more easily.
Remember acupuncture is very helpful with this maintenance as well.
