Should I get a massage immediately after a marathon?

It is increasingly common for organisers of long-distance endurance events to have 'massage areas' set up at the end of the race. Generally, at Strong Massage, we prefer our clients to get their sports massage the next day instead of the same day as it is better overall in terms of recovery.

Recently, someone posed the same questions to Dr. Lewis Maharam, a leading running sports physician the same question at his blog. He posted up an excellent answer to the questions.

For a more detailed explaination on why you should wait at least 2-3 hours after your event for your sports massage, read Dr. Maharam's post here.
