Why is massage beneficial after running a marathon?

  • Speed recovery time for your body
  • Increase oxygen and nutrient absorption
  • Remove lactic acid
  • Promote blood flow to the muscles
  • Break up scar tissue build up, therefore lessening any potential injury

  • Ice and Fire Sports Massage or Honua Therapeutic is a choice treatment for more serious runners.  However, any type of bodywork which causes you to relax and encourages oxygen and blood circulation is always recommended. You should feel the "good kind of pain." * For Ice and Fire Sports Massage please let us know in advance as this treatment requires preparation time.

    How soon after running an event should I get a massage?

    You can receive a massage as early as minutes after crossing the finish line.  Getting a massage within 2 days of following your event is always recommended.

    If god's will for us is to be liberty and independence, if we have done everything we humanly and possibly can to stand and learn how to use our freedom of free will and self determination to exercise our creative conscience, with an insurmountable faith in the father amidst an apex of crisis, we entrust the power of Prayer and Grace to look after us the rest of the way. Here's a great version of John Newton's Amazing Grace by Rhema Marvanne.

    Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
    That saved a wretch like me.
    I once was lost but now am found,
    Was blind, but now I see.

    T'was Grace that taught my heart to fear.
    And Grace, my fears relieved.
    How precious did that Grace appear
    The hour I first believed.

    Through many dangers, toils and snares
    I have already come;
    'Tis Grace that brought me safe thus far
    and Grace will lead me home.

    The Lord has promised good to me.
    His word my hope secures.
    He will my shield and portion be,
    As long as life endures.

    Yea, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
    And mortal life shall cease,
    I shall possess within the veil,
    A life of joy and peace.

    When we've been here ten thousand years
    Bright shining as the sun.
    We've no less days to sing God's praise
    Than when we've first begun.

    Having tried many types of hydration methods, from the age old just drinking water to elaborate forms of hydration that uses H30 water, alkaliized PH7 water, filtered water, mineralized water etc., What was discovered through professional athletes, and training camps competing in weight class driven sporting activities, anecdotes from friends, coworkers, nutritionists and my own research and experimentation resulted in combining relatively inexpensive easy to access ways to hydrate for water retention, re-mineraliziation, and re-vitalization of depleted nutrients from alcohol consumption, high stress sports/athletics movements, or high oxidative stress environments from prolonged high altitude air travel, to get out of that groggy, drowsy, tired, sluggish feeling.

    Himalayan salt

    Ross Dress for Less offers really inexpensive Himalayan salt and adding a teaspoon or less depending on your general sodium intake into a small glass of alkalized or clean filtered water, and follow with a 8.5oz of organic coconut water is a great source of bare essential trace minerals, such as magnesium, potassium, sodium, manganese small quantities of vitamin c after a massage treatment, hot spring onsen/ sauna / banya / turkish hamam session, or before bed following holiday drinking festivities and celebrations.

    To mitigate mild hangovers supplementing turmeric and krill oil to reduce inflammation (also very effective for inflammation from strenuous athletic activity, inflammation from injury ie. sprains and muscle strains), and ginger for nausea, upset stomach before and after alcohol consumption, and Alkalime type mixture or sodium bicarbonate (Alka Seltzer), Lemon, Lime, with a partially filled small glass to taste of clean filtered water and finish with Coconut water has been very effective personally for recovery. All of the items above are accessible at our local health food store Kokua Market. Please give it a try and see if there is any measurable difference. Mahalo
