6 treatments to have before + after marathon day

Leading up to the London Marathon next weekend, we recommend the best treatments to help you prepare before and recover after the big day.

before + after: sports massage

 

“Specifically designed sequences of massage techniques to support   runners, with a focus on race preparation and promotion of recovery post-marathon by easing muscular and connective tissue tensions and fatigue, drainage of waste products and restoration of mind-body wellbeing.” – Alice Mooney

“Sports massage can assist tapering of training and iron out any muscular tension pre marathon. Improves recovery time, circulation and muscle tone post marathon.” – Phil Bishop

before + after: podiatry

 

“Podiatry treatments can be applicable both before and after a run depending on the regular symptoms of the runner, whether it is short distance or long distance. Runners often need pre-conditioning treatments for symptomatic joint pain, regular blisters, bruised painful nails, painful calluses, corns, etc. for which treatment can make a run much more comfortable. However, symptoms may also be more apparent after the event. It’s absolutely worth having your feet checked out either way!” – Yvonne Mattis

Yvonne offers podiatry + medical pedicures in chelsea. Book now.

before: physiotherapy

 

Physiotherapy is the treatment of musculo-skeletal conditions – signs and symptoms involving joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles and nerves, and how they in turn affect normal movement. Treatments can help runners identifying the primary cause of a condition and also treat the symptoms, addressing the long-term resolution rather than a short-term fix.

before + after: massage

 

Hawaiian lomi lomi massage

“Hawaiian Lomi Lomi massage utilises long, flowing strokes of various pressure to release muscle tension and increase blood flow. This can be especially beneficial in the days before and after big competitions or as a recovery tool after hard workouts. The lighter, relaxing strokes help relieve stress and muscle tension without damaging the muscles. This bodywork after a race can help you relax, heal and get your legs back under you.” – Slavomir Latko

Slavomir offers Hawaiian lomi lomi + sound massages in camden + chelsea. Book now.

Thai yoga massage

“Thai yoga massage is a perfect post-marathon treatment. It is known to be particularly effective at reducing joint and muscle pain in the lower back, legs and feet. Thai massage was initially developed for agricultural workers who worked long hours in the fields and ended up with painful legs and tight muscles. Thai massage treatments, therefore, have many techniques, which focus on the lower part of the body. A Thai massage treatment incorporates stretches to lengthen tight muscles, rhythmic palm presses on the muscles to aid circulation and reduce lactic acid build up, and focused movement of joints to help restore full mobility.  A Thai massage can reduce pain and boost recovery time.” – Jo Lim

Jo offers Thai yoga + abdominal massages in camden. Book now.

after: acupuncture

 

Acupuncture is a system of healing, which has been practised in China and other Eastern countries for over 3,000 years. Needles are gently inserted into carefully selected points on the channels of the body to stimulate the healing process, making it a great option for post-marathon pain, aches and, ultimately, recovery.

after: reflexology

 

Reflexology is based on the principal that the body is mapped onto the feet, hands and ears. By working with these specific pressure points, reflexology can help runners brings about change in the corresponding organs, glands or structures of the body, which can help with recovery by improving the circulation and stimulating the organs of elimination.
