Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) January 13, 2012 - Massage Envy Phoenix, a co-op of 27 clinics and part of the nation’s largest massage therapy provider and largest spa franchise in the U.S., is offering participants in the January 15th P.F. Chang’s Rock ‘n’ Roll Arizona Marathon & ½ Marathon a free 30-minute massage upgrade when a one-hour massage session is scheduled.
Guests or members of a local Phoenix Massage Envy who are participating in the race and schedule a one-hour massage session now through Tuesday, January 31, can request a 30-minute upgrade. To qualify, runners must provide their P.F. Chang’s Rock & Roll Arizona Marathon number or registration at the time of their appointment.
“Massage is proving to be a key element of any training or athletic program,” said Steve Cook, Massage Envy’s regional developer in Arizona and Las Vegas. “More and more competitive athletes are seeking relief for the areas of their body that are overused and stressed from repetitive and often aggressive movements.”
Massage can be used to enhance pre-event preparation and reduce recovery time for maximum performance during training or after sporting events. Athletes have discovered that regular massage promotes flexibility, reduces fatigue, improves endurance, helps prevent injuries and prepares the mind and body for optimal performance. Furthermore, some recent studies have noted a trend toward decreased muscle soreness in athletes who received massage either before or after exercise.
