Quick Tip: Does massage help you cycle better?

Posted by on May 16, 2017 in Bodywork Techniques, Exercises, Health and Wellness, Stretches

As part of bike month, we're sending extra love to all our cycling clients — like Jim Bradbury. Jim's been coming to Psoas for almost 10 years! He commutes by bike and has a pretty impressive cycling history. He's cycled in Paris-Brest-Paris four times and is currently training with his nephew for a 600K race! Psoas co-owner Jenny Lightstone sat down with Jim to chat about the perennial quad tightness of bikers, and how bodywork has helped him stay cycling. Check out the interview below!

And if any of you are wondering how to fit massage into your cycling program, just give us a call and we are happy to talk it through with you. Through May we're actually offering 10% off a Cycling Sports Massage. Ask for the cycling special when you schedule your appointment, and we'll set you up with a therapist who will tailor the session towards your cycling goals and needs. 

In the meantime, take care of yourself by adding a 5-15 minute brisk walk or jog after you ride. This will help stretch your hip flexors, straighten out your back, and just generally help recalibrate your system.
