Swimmers prepare for intense competitions by spending many strenuous hours each day performing swim laps in the pool. Just like in any other sport, swimmers are prone to injury. Swimmers use all of the muscles of their body to exert tremendous force on the water and propel themselves to move forward at high speeds. At the end of the swimmer’s day, total body care is needed. Sports massage helps swimmers be healthy and strong, both mentally and physically, throughout the swimming season and beyond.
Ice-water bathing once was the bone-chilling specialty of Scandinavian health fanatics and pro athletes with aching muscles. Now, thanks to social media influencers such as Dutch extreme athlete Wim Hof, aka “Iceman,” actress Gwyneth Paltrow and ultramarathoner David Goggins, it is having a mainstream moment.
