Benefits of Sports Massage for Runners

Running is one of the most popular pastimes. Running gives the body a great workout, but it can also cause issues with muscles, nerves, and joints. It doesn’t matter if your running is a part of other athletic activities, training for marathons or just basic fitness, running is a big part of life for many people, and runners are a big part of Tri-Covery.

Recovery Massage for Runners & Running Injuries

Performance-Recovery Therapists at Tri-Covery understand how different muscles and joints respond to running activities. Running employs muscles in the arms, legs, and even the spine. Most people would expect running injuries to be in the legs, but the lower back, upper back and the core will sometimes experience the first injuries.

When these injuries occur, the Performance and Recovery team at Tri-Covery can help you recover quickly. More importantly, we can help you prevent those same injuries from recurring in the future.

Fascial Stretch Therapy for Runners

One of the unique therapies Tri-Covery offers for runners is Facial Stretch Therapy (FST). FST can help decrease pain and vastly improve circulation, which aids in the healing process. FST can also help increase your range of motion, improving your running performance.

Runners can also benefit from these Tri-Covery offerings:

Massage Therapists for Runners

The Performance-Recovery Therapists at Tri-Covery offer more than a “feel good” solution. Running gives muscles a hearty workout. As you start to increase the usage of these muscles, strain and fatigue can set in. When your muscles start to ache or hurt, they also constrict and become tight. With targeted massage therapy and flexibility training, muscles become more relaxed which allows healthy blood flow and release of toxins from the body. Better circulation means healthier muscles. Healthier muscles are stronger and less like to be injured.

Tri-Covery would like to partner with you in living an active life that is free from injury. For runners, our services have proven to greatly benefit performance and endurance. When an injury does occur, our highly-trained, certified Recovery Therapists will get you quickly on the road to recovery. Our professionals will make sure that you keep moving!

    Penny S.
  • “I have been seeing Jeff now for several years, and I can say without any hesitation, that he is the finest massage therapist in the land. Not only is he skilled and knowledgeable, but he is also one of the nicest people you will ever come across. Jeff takes the time to access your needs and concerns, and then skillfully goes to work on your problem areas. I would recommend Jeff to anyone who desires massage therapy delivered in a relaxing, friendly and professional environment.”

    David S.
  • “Jeff’s expert knowledge of fitness, strengthening, and conditioning exercises really helped us get started on a simple in home program to help us stay fit and keep our weight in control. After only a couple of visits he was able to teach us dozens of routines that we could work on in our home without having to invest in any expensive equipment. Jeff is such a personable professional, he makes doing your exercises fun. Thanks to Jeff we now have more energy and feel our bodies are better toned! Also, his messages will do wonders for any tense muscles or stiffness you may be experiencing. If you want expert, personalized fitness training we highly recommend Tri-Covery Massage & Fitness.”

  • “I went to Jeff with a nagging shoulder pain. Jeff quickly identified what it was and how to help it to heal. Most importantly, he showed me stretches and exercises to help keep from injuring it again.”

    Jason L.
  • “As both an athlete and a personal trainer, I understand the benefits of sports massage first-hand. When my body needs a rejuvenating massage, I call Jeff. If a friend, family member or training client can benefit from sports massage, the only name I give them is Jeff Kong. Very few people have the combined skill set of athlete, trainer and massage therapist with a functional knowledge of the body like Jeff. I never hesitate to recommend him, and you shouldn’t hesitate to call him.”

    Tad M.
  • “I have been training with and getting massages from Jeff Kong for over 5 years. I have a chronic back condition that can be very difficult to deal with at times. He REALLY listens to what is going on and what areas need attention on any particular day. He uses any of the great variety of methods and techniques that he feels will help me that particular day. When I schedule a massage before a visit to my chiropractor, it greatly helps the ease of adjustment and relaxes my muscles so I have a better chance of STAYING aligned after my adjustment. He’s one of the BEST and I would and DO highly recommend him!”

    Ann R.
  • “I consistently am thanked for referring clients to Jeff and often hear him described as, “caring, intuitive, engaged professional, and the best”. For these reasons, Jeff continues to earn my massage therapy referrals. Thank you, Jeff”
