Sports Massage at the Finish Line

Students from Swedish Institute’s Massage Therapy program provide sports massage at various sporting events in New York City, including the recent Aquaphor® NYC Triathlon. Under the supervision of faculty and working alongside licensed practitioners from Pegasus Wellness Alliance, the team helps close to 500 athletes recover from the competition.  Here’s a look at some of the highlights of the day.
Our next event will be at the finish line of the Ironman® Championship in August, followed by the ING NYC Marathon in November.
