Recap: Our Massage School at the 2017 Twin Cities Marathon

25 Oct 2017

Each year October brings around one of our favorite events – the annual Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon. And each time the marathon gets put on, CenterPoint puts up its massage tent at the finish line.  This year was no different.

Be sure to check out the slide show from this year’s race.  As you can see from the photos, our staff and students (as always) had a great day! They even got a chance to give each other a little bodywork to keep their muscles in top shape for the day. This race has often been called “the most beautiful urban marathon in America.”  We like to think our students and staff are beautiful, too!

For athletes such as the runners in this marathon and the other races that were a part of the weekend, getting a massage right after competition gives them a jump start on muscle healing. It can actually shorten the recovery time after a competition. That’s one reason you’re seeing more and more professional sports teams bringing massage therapists into the locker room or practice facility.

Giving students from our Minneapolis massage school a chance to do outreach in the community by bringing in some of our student therapists at events such as this is just one of the ways we help to prepare them for success in the field of bodywork.  And with the rising demand for specialized massage therapy such as sports massage, providing post-competition massage at this race is a great way to give them the opportunity to put their skills to work. And the runners seem to really enjoy getting a much-needed healing touch when they’re done.  And we’re already looking forward to next year!
