We’re excited to have Louise and her team from LJM Massage on board again this year, who will be providing soft tissue massages before and after the race. There will be a small charge of £10 for a 15 minutes, but £1 of that will go to this year’s charity.
Here’s a little bit about them:
Louise Mitchell, MISRM, MSMA
Soft Tissue Therapy is a key addition to any person’s training schedule to keep muscles flexible and to prevent injury especially for those who train regularly. It is also incredibly beneficial for those of us who sit behind desks and drive a lot which leads to a build up in tension and can lead to future long term issues.
Key Benefits of Massage:-
•Can help ease muscular tension caused by stress or exercise •Can help improve Posture
•Can improve sleep through muscle relaxation
•Can support a better range of movement
•Improves circulation and lymphatic flow
•Can help with scar tissue reduction post injury
