Spring is the time of year when we witness nature’s rebirth. You could also say humans also experience a rebirth and/or reclamation of physical activity after winter hibernation.
Sometimes we can get overzealous and do too much too soon.
Now our ideas of getting into shape fast must take a back seat while we nurse our injuries.
How can we prevent this from happening?
Here are some great tips from the Body Solace Team:
Roni Riley, Our Integrate Movement Specialist and STOTT PILATES Certified Instructor recommends starting slow.
If that ship has already sailed and you overdid it, a massage is a great way to recover.
Also, participating in pilates training to build strength, with individual programs tailored to your favorite spring activities or sports.
Jill Kozhevnikov, one of our Licensed Massage Therapists recommends regular massage; not only for physical wellness but also for emotional well-being.
Massage can help reduce stress, improve sleep quality, and prevent and alleviate pain.
Allyssa Bedard, Owner of Body Solace has a few different recommendations for a healthy and energetic spring season as well.
Receiving Lymph Drainage Therapy before endurance training, racing, hiking, etc. can improve athletic performance significantly. It can also help with symptoms of seasonal allergies such as lack of energy, sinus congestion, itchy eyes, and headaches.
She also recommends Pilates as an adjunct to sports training.
Stay tuned for more benefits of massage and pilates!
