Performance or Sports Massage serves the needs of athletes and fitness enthusiasts. Being an athlete and workout junky myself, I can vouch to the wonders that a good Sports Massage can provide. I have worked with many athletes and weekend warriors over the years, and I have helped them recover from injuries as well as prevent them. Sports Massage Therapists incorporate a lot of different techniques including different types of stretching, trigger point therapy, friction and skin rolling to name a few.
Here are some of the benefits of Sports Massage:
It improves the circulation of blood and lymph, helping to maintain the muscle and soft tissues in an optimum state of nutrition.
Muscle tightness and restriction are reduced which creates improved tone, flexibility and relaxation. Overall muscle balance is also improved.
One can recover more quickly from and injury and reduce the likelihood of further injury.
Muscle soreness is reduced, which enables more consistent, higher level training and performance.
It reduces pain and promotes overall relaxation.
Body awareness is enhanced which can assist in fully expressive movement.
Finally, it provides a psychological boost that generates self confidence.
If you are a tennis player, golfer, swimmer, runner, dancer, cyclist or fitness enthusiast, I can help you with your tight muscles, aches, pains and injuries and help you feel an overall sense of well-being.

We can all get stuck in a rut, but there are so many things we can do to nourish and renew ourselves in all areas of our lives.
Some of the new things I am doing this year are the flollowing: Getting better at speaking Spanish (DuoLingo is a great language app), volunteering with Hands On Atlanta and Project Open Hand, trying Cryotherapy at Icebox Cryotherapy, reading more books, getting more proficient at boxing and kickboxing, traveling to new places, making new connections with people in the wellness industry, creating an online course in wellness, cutting down more on waste and continuing to declutter my house, playing pickleball, and playing my ukulele more.
All of these activities will nourish my mind, body and spirit. I want to do a better job of watching my thoughts and focusing on how I want to feel. Our thoughts can sometimes bring us into a negative headspace. It takes practice to notice these thoughts and to tell ourselves they are only thoughts, and that they can be changed.
It is hard to balance all of the different areas of our lives, but it is possible if we focus on how we want to feel.
What are some new things you will do in 2019 to recharge your life?
Create a great year!
