Intro to Athletics

There are many routines and practices utilized by professional athletes that we never really hear about or are aware of. Among these are excellent nutrition, hydration, hydrotherapy (water and temperature modalities), training , massage, yoga or some form of stretching, meditation, mind & focus skills, mental training, sometimes dance techniques (ballet) for development of smaller more fine tuning muscles used for balance.

The truth is to be really, really good at anything requires skills for the mind and skills for the body, and the training of how to combine those for effective & excellent performance in any situation.

Massage has been used for decades in athletic programs to accelerate the recovery of the mind and body after it has been used hard and heavy and for long durations. It stimulates repair of damaged tissues, relaxes the mind & body to communicate clearly the rest cycle for the athlete, and resets homeostasis, the balance of our systems and their interactions.
