Sports Massage Keeps U.S. Paracyclist in Peak Condition


Jamie Whitmore knows massage therapy works. As a member of the U.S. Paracycling Team, massage therapy helps her stay in peak condition.

"Massage therapy is a crucial part of my recovery program. It helps my legs recover after hard efforts. It also helps me sleep better so that I can go harder the next day," said Jamie.

Athletes of all fitness levels can benefit from regular massage therapy. Massage is shown to reduce muscle tension, improve exercise performance and prevent injuries.

Congratulations to Jamie for winning an ESPY (Excellence in Sports Performance Yearly) Award for Best Female Athlete with a Disability! Thanks to the AMTA community for showing their support for this massage therapy advocate!
