Sports Massage at the 2010 BC Summer Games

This past weekend I volunteered my time to provide sports massage therapy at the BC Summer Games in Langley, BC.  The experience was definitely rewarding.  Situated under a tent adjacent to the field lacrosse and rugby events, a variety of young athletes approached me and my colleagues for treatments.  The most prevalent athletes that came through the tent appeared to be rugby players.  Banged and bruised from recent play, these athletes lined up to have a variety of issues addressed prior to their game.

In between sessions, I took in the sights and sounds of the activities surrounding me. The vocal jubilation of the crowds, the intricacies of the plays, and the general feeling of excitement that filled the air produced a euphoric sensation during my involvement in the games.

Congratulations to all the athletes who took part in the games, and to the members who worked behind the scenes to make it all happen.
