Sports Massage for Work Hard Play Hard New Yorkers like You!
Custom designed sports massage for your specific exercise routine is a great way to help heal current injuries and prevent future injuries.
In NYC, we take fitness, wellness, and sports to a whole new level. Somehow, we find the time to regularly exercise, even working 50+ hours a week.
However, when you cram exercise into an already busy schedule, you leave out basic post workout self care habits. Like a cool down period at the end of a workout. And time for stretching. We go directly from the gym, to sitting on the subway, to sitting at desk.
When you try to get up at the end of the workday, you are stiff, immobile, and hurting. But that's just the cost of working out, right?
This way of being is just asking for an injury!
Why does it seem like my body is breaking down? I'm only _____ years old!?
Our bodies require rest and recovery time. And we rarely give them what they need. Whether it's working long hours, business travel, and/or our busy social lives. New Yorkers are go go go. Going from all star college athlete to the workforce is a shocking transition. Suddenly you are sitting 60+ hours a week. Stressing over depositions and reports. Or staring at 4 trading monitors for 12 hours straight. Then you run out to grab drinks with friends, get home at 1 am. Then you get 5 hours of sleep and start all over again at 6 am. Rinse and repeat.
Now, add in time at the gym or yoga studio. That's supposed to be healthy, right?
Not so much. Without time to repair torn up soft tissues, each workout will slowly break down tendons and ligaments. Scar tissue will build up in the muscles. You'll get stiffer, plateau in your routine, and start wondering why it seems to be getting harder to do the same thing.
Self Care Musts for Workout Junkies
The first and most important thing to change in this scenario is that you need more sleep! The second is getting regular sports massage sessions to help loosen up the musculature. You'd be surprised at the results even one session can yield.
We worked on the rotator cuff of a seasoned tennis pro and his serve tracked 6 mph faster on average the following day! Want your times decreased, your speed and power increased? Sports massage is a major part of the training routine of all professional athletes. Why not you?
