Everybody can appreciate a good massage, there is no doubt about it. Unfortunately, many riders cannot find the time or the funds to go for sports massages on a regular basis.

Sports massage makes our fantasy list because its is such an incredible tool that not many are able to use.
We will do a comprehensive post on the benefits of sports massage in next week’s Wellness Wednesday series.
