It’s football season!

Fan celebrating a victory at a American football gameFinally! We’ve been waiting for SO long for this season to start, and it’s finally here.

Football is what really lets you know that fall is just around the corner. You may be anticipating pumpkin spice everything and warm cozy sweaters as the heralds of the next season. But you have to agree that there’s just something about football that encourages a sense of community and fun.

If you play football or have an athlete in your home, your take on football might be a little different. You share the love of the game, but you are also much more aware of its impact on the body. With that in mind, you’re probably thinking a lot more about a sports massage than about when a pumpkin spice latte will be available.

The dictionary definition of sports massage is: “a form of bodywork geared toward participants in athletics. It is used to help prevent injuries, to prepare the body for athletic activity and maintain it in optimal condition, and to help athletes recover from workouts and injuries.” For athletes, sports massage can help with more than pain and soreness after a workout or game. It can help with range of motion and muscle recovery. Keep in mind that a massage has numerous physical and psychological benefits. A sports massage, though, is designed specifically to address the unique stresses endured by an athlete’s body.

At Jon’Ric International Massage & Wellness Spa, our sports massage combines several techniques, focusing on those specific actions that will assist in muscle recovery and relieving pain and soreness. A sports massage can focus on specific areas of the body or it can be a full-body treatment. Your massage therapist will begin each session with a short consult. Book today!
