What is Massage for Runners?

Massage for Runners in Albuquerque

At Athletic Touch Therapeutic Massage, I love working with runners-why? Because improving your gait is my specialty! Both runner and massage therapist see quick and long lasting results! Massage can help improve a runner's stride length, breath intake, arm efficiency, balanced gait, and can heal running injuries 50% faster than rest alone. It seems like massage was created just for runners!

Running is one of the best ways to stay in shape and relieve stress. Running is easy to do, is almost always available, and not much equipment is needed. Though running is stress relieving and fairly simple, running is quite hard on the body. Once bad habits are learned in life or created from an existing injury, postural problems occur and injuries start piling up. Massage can help a runner recover from injury and can prevent future injuries with regular massage treatments.  In addition, for those athletes looking to improve their speed & race times, smooth the efficiency of their gait, and lengthen their stride, check out our training packages below.​​​​​​​​​​​



I offer a diverse selection of massage to support runners of all levels.

​For marathon trainees, or the runner with basic needs, try the Massage for Runners.

The Runner’s Edge Massage is for the athlete who needs some attention to their body, but can only come in to see me 1-4 times per year.

If you have stubborn pain that keeps you from running or continues to keep you down, try the Problem Solving for Runners.

Massage for Runners​​​​​​​​​​​
Massage for runners, in my opinion, is essential for a runner’s longevity. I use long massage strokes, corrective massage, stretches and strengthening on the legs, back arms, feet, calves, and neck to improve the overall speed and running performance. To make this appointment or buy this treatment online, choose "Sports Massage for 90 minutes".​

Runner's Edge Massage​​​​​​​​​​​
The Runner’s Edge massage is for all running sports including cross country, track, marathons, triathlons, soccer, basketball, etc, bringing fluid movement back into your gait. This treatment focuses on the hips, gluts, quads & hamstrings, knees, calves, ankles, feet & neck, finding which painful areas slow you down. The Runner's Edge Massage uses deep strokes to the legs, with special attention to connective tissues. It may include ice and/or heat, specific aromatherapy oils, and homeopathic salves for bruises and chronic areas. Remember that Sports Massage cuts the healing process almost in half! The final and most important part of this focused Sports Massage treatment is combining stretching and breathing to those running muscles that are difficult to stretch.

Problem Solving for Runners​​​​​​​​​​​
Do you have stubborn chronic pain that affects your running? I love hard to figure out chronic pain! It’s like a puzzle. A Problem Solving for Runners Massage is just that: finding the pain is easy, it’s figuring out where it’s coming from that’s a key to relieving that chronic pain. Is it the way you are landing on your big toe? Or maybe the way you breath while you’re running? Where are you tight, strong, weak, etc. Together, we will try to solve the mystery of your pain. The first session takes at least 90 minutes. Give me a chance to show you a different perspective on possible causes of your pain.
