Being an athlete suffering from mental illnesses is no different than being a regular athlete. You have your good days and your bad days.
Whether you’re tired, injured, or just tight, bodywork may help you not only get over aches and pains, but have a better mind-body connection, too.
Although I had medicines for the body pains, I knew that I also needed help healing something equally important: my emotional and mental well-being.
Being a triathlete, firefighter, and paramedic I am aware that accidents can happen. It’s important that we as athlete’s do all we can to protect ourselves.
Fueling your body properly plays such a large role in your training, whether you are working toward your first 5k or building up endurance to tackle an Ironman. Sometimes, making good choices and eating healthy doesn’t seem to do it and we need a little more help.
