Rain Delay Massage

I recently volunteered my massage therapy services at a golf tournament held in Vancouver, http://www.freedom55financialopen.com . It was a rewarding experience as it turned into more massage work than anticipated since there was a major rain delay. The players were pacing anxiously as the tee times kept getting pushed back due to the soggy course conditions. It was a great opportunity to receive a massage, helping the athletes mentally and physically cope with the schedule change. Overuse injuries are quite common in golf, especially due to the unilateral nature of the swing. Most of these golfers adhered to daily preventative exercises and sought out physical therapy for any niggling issues. I was impressed with the golfers knowledge and dedication to treatment, I could see why there were successful in their sport!
