At this time of year, most people are thinking about what’s gone by in the previous year, and what lies ahead for them in the coming year, whether it is to recover from chronic pain and injury, run a marathon or 10 k race, improve body composition (reduce body fat and increase lean muscle mass). It may even be a specific thought regarding your work or business activities, and how you can create more time for yourself or family and simultaneously counteract the pressure that your work or daily lifestyle puts onto you.
Of course, sports and deep tissue massage is just one part of the puzzle to get on track, it’s equally important to look at the consistency in your daily, weekly and monthly routine, and how the connection between every component of your lifestyle fits together, which may often be a bit harder to do than you might think! If you are training for a specific sporting event or fitness and strength goal, then you will need to progressively increase the volume or intensity of training you are doing, and this can sometimes result in a few aches and pains along the way, but whether you have a sports and deep tissue massage to help with a specific muscular ache or pain, or book in more routinely throughout the year because it leaves you feeling good afterwards and keeps you on an even keel, it’s important to spend time working on restorative exercise - this can be any or all of activities such as free weights (ensuring correct form and progressive warm up lifts) yoga, pilates, callisthenics, swimming etc, the benefits to your body and mind are improved with activity, just as they are with lying on the therapy bench, it’s about doing these things in a way that they don’t feel like you need to spend too much time planning them, just simply doing them, and sometimes with restorative exercise, a little bit done more frequently, without having to overload your body and nervous system with intense and long sessions, can be very beneficial.👌🏻
