I have felt great benefits as a runner from getting massages. Some runners may feel hesitant to get a massage because they do not know what will happen. Here is a video from the Center for Natural Wellness in Albany, NY that shows the massage techniques used in a foot massage: http://youtu.be/qEM6IoV5jdI
I like the idea that massage strokes move blood to the massaged area, and that massaging the foot will help move fluids in the foot back to the heart.
Do you recommend foot massage as a part of your running practice?
