Livewell Health at the Black Country Half Marathon

Livewell Health at the Black Country Half Marathon: Enhancing Athlete Performance and Recovery

This past Saturday morning in Birmingham, Livewell Health proudly participated in the Black Country Marathon, providing essential pre- and post-race services to runners. The marathon, known for its challenging course and vibrant community atmosphere, was the perfect venue for Livewell Health to showcase its commitment to enhancing athlete performance and recovery.

As athletes gathered at the starting line, the excitement and nervous energy were palpable. To help runners prepare for the rigorous race ahead, Livewell Health set up a dedicated area offering pre-race massages. Our team of professional therapists worked diligently to warm up muscles, increase circulation, and alleviate pre-race jitters. These targeted massages helped runners achieve optimal physical readiness, potentially enhancing their performance and reducing the risk of injury.

In addition to traditional massage therapy, Livewell Health introduced the innovative use of compression boots. These high-tech devices are designed to improve blood flow and expedite the body’s natural recovery process. Before the race, many athletes took advantage of this service, experiencing the benefits of compression therapy firsthand. The feedback was overwhelmingly positive, with runners noting a significant difference in their muscle readiness and overall comfort.

As the marathon concluded and participants crossed the finish line, the Livewell Health team was ready to assist with post-race recovery. Exhausted but exhilarated runners flocked to our booth, eager for the relief provided by post-race massages. These messages focused on reducing muscle tension, minimising soreness, and promoting relaxation after the strenuous effort. The compression boots also played a crucial role in post-race recovery, helping to alleviate swelling and speed up the healing process.

Livewell Health’s involvement in the Black Country Marathon was a resounding success, highlighting our dedication to supporting athletes at every stage of their journey. By offering comprehensive pre- and post-race services, we ensured that runners could perform at their best and recover swiftly, ready to tackle their next challenge. We look forward to continuing our partnership with the marathon and enhancing the athletic experience for all participants.

Sports Massage Therapists To The Pro’s!

LIVEWELL is the number one choice for Sports Massage therapists to the Pro’s!

Sports Massage is as we know a key component to any elite sports person’s regime and LIVEWELL have been providing sports massage therapists and offering the very best sports massage treatments across the UK to help. Our team of highly trained professionals have been working with athletes from Team GB, Premier League Football clubs, Cricket Clubs, Rugby clubs and much more up and down the UK for many years helping to keep injuries at bay and repair muscles after a hard competition.

Athletes like our very own Jodie Stimpson, Team GB triathlete and someone who knows very well the benefits given through a good sports massage and a therapist who know’s the body inside and out. With training hitting in excess of 6 sessions a week for the vast majority of serious athletes you can see how training really takes it’s toll on the body.  Having a regular sports massage can help keep the muscles healthy, get rid of built up tension and prevent injury as well as helping to improve performance. This is so important for a professional athlete training for a up coming competition, as even a short break from the training schedule due to injury can see a real impact on results and indeed fitness.

Now you may be reading this and thinking well, I don’t class myself as an athlete like these guys but do 3 or 4 hard sessions a week in the gym or on the running track. Well the principle is the same, training hard means your muscles need the care to keep them injury free and a good sports massage with a highly trained sports therapist and soft tissue specialist can be just what you need to kick on into the next stage of your training.

With our level 4 and 5 qualified sports massage and soft tissue specialists we can help you not only with hands on treatment but an array of techniques, stretches and solid dietary advice to keep your body at 100% effectiveness.
