Massage: Recovery After a Marathon

Mar 21, 2008
After a hard day's work, sometimes it pays to get a great massage from a local massage therapist. And if for you a hard day's work is running the Los Angeles Marathon, then an after race massage is the perfect end to get your muscles relaxed and back in shape for the next race.

But for the marathon runner that's not from Los Angeles, where is he or she going to find a good massage therapist with the skills to perform a specific type of massage? Well, for the out-of-towners, there is this great tool. You might have heard of it. It's called the World Wide Web. Yeah, I just saw the bulb go off in your head. It's a great thing isn't it?

The World Wide Web has helped to close the huge gap between those who are looking for some small niche service and those who provide it. This creates a business for companies to advertise a niche product or service for those small businesses who might not otherwise be able to afford a marketing campaign.

These marketing services appear in the form of searchable databases on specific niche service -- massage therapy for example. You can easily find a niche directory by searching for one through your favorite search engine.

So let's imagine that you're getting ready to run in the Los Angeles Marathon and you know, from past experience, that you are going to want a massage therapist there at the end of the race to give your tired body a good rub down. Simply search for "Los Angeles massage" and you'll quickly come across what you're looking for.

Be sure that the directory you access provides all the pertinent information that you need to select a good Los Angeles massage therapist. A good and well-maintained directory will require their massage therapists to enter in all the information you need, such as:

- The different types of massages they are trained in
- Rates
- Service area
- Whether they are willing to come to you (meet you at the end of the race for example)

Now that you know where to find a Los Angeles massage therapist, you're all set for the Boston Marathon, New York Marathon, and -- if you so dare -- the Badwater 135 mile Ultramarathon through the scorching heat of Death Valley.

For the Badwater Ultramarathon, you might want to hire a whole team of massage therapists to follow you. Don't say I didn't warn you!
