Sports Massage Rehabilitated My Injury

I once had dreams of being in the Olympics. I was a very good swimmer who had medaled many times when I was younger, but a sports injury kept me from going to the international stage. Even though my Olympic dreams were shot, I was still very grateful for the abilities that I had. I knew that I did not want to give up on swimming, and I also knew that if I could not compete, I could at least coach others who have the same dream. I had sports massage therapy in Kent right after my injury, and that is one of the reasons why I did not give up on the sport.

I knew that I needed to have this therapy because I was in a lot of pain. I knew that I would need to have specialized treatment in order for the tissue to return to normal. Without that, I knew I would not be able to swim for pleasure let alone for the sport of it. I was able to find a good sports massage therapist not too far from me. He did a complete assessment before recommending the massage therapy I ended up having.

To say that this completely changed my life is not an overstatement at all. Without this massage therapy, I would not have been able to continue on with my dream of helping other swimmers get better and hopefully end up on the international stage as well. Even though I would not be able to compete at that level again, i still had the motivation and knowledge on how to get them there. In fact, I insist that all of my students have masage therapy too because it is good not only for rehabilitation but also for restoration and prevention of future injuries. It works because two of my students are international winners now!
