  • There are several benefits to getting a massage after taking part in a sports event. Benefits of getting a post-event massage

    Marathons and other high-impact and grueling sports events cause a lot of strain on the body. If you're considering enrolling in massage therapy school, you may know that athletes use massage for several reasons. Many sports therapists recommend massages before, between and after major sports events to help the body perform better and recover faster. Here's a quick guide for getting a massage after taking part in a marathon, triathlon or other sports event:

    Head to the massage tent
    Most marathon finish lines have a massage tent set up for the athletes to use directly after completing the race. While sports and massage therapists recommend a deep tissue massage after an event, this is not the time for it. The massage tent is provided so runners can get a quick and very light muscle rubdown, no longer than 30 minutes, so the massage doesn't create extra trauma for the already-pained muscles. The initial rubdown soothes and calms overworked muscles to promote quicker healing. 

    Schedule a massage right away
    Before your sports event, decide when to schedule your post-event massage. You should never get a deep tissue massage the day after an event, but two days later is OK. The ideal time to pencil in a post-event massage is three to five days after in order to give your body time to rest and recuperate. 

    Know the benefits
    So why should you get a deep tissue massage after taking part in a marathon or other sports event? Here are some of the major benefits:

    • Reduces soreness: Deep tissue massages focus on a person's muscles, which are likely to be very sore after a marathon. Post-event massages have been shown to reduce that soreness and provide some relief. 
    • Helps flush out waste: Massage helps remove toxins and other waste at the cellular level that can build up during a workout. 
    • Heals injuries: Taking part in a sports event is very traumatic for a person's body, so they're likely to experience some minor injuries simply from overuse. Slight muscle tears, swelling and joint pain can all be improved during an after-event massage. Because it flushes out metabolic waste and toxins, massage helps injuries heal more quickly. 

    Remember to always drink plenty of water in conjunction with your post-event massages to flush toxins and keep your muscles hydrated. If you sustain serious injuries from running a marathon, set up an appointment with a doctor right away.


  • Grow a mustache for charity during Movember! Are you ready for Movember?

    It's time for Movember, the annual phenomenon that has men around the world growing mustaches throughout the whole month of November. If you're considering becoming a barber, you've probably heard of Movember and its cousin No-Shave November, but did you know Movember's more than just a viral trend? Take a look at what Movember is, and what you can do to prepare yourself for it.

    How did Movember begin?
    Movember began in Australia in 2003 when 30 guys decided to grow out their mustaches for fun during November, but it was the year after that it really took off. In 2004 the founders established the Movember Group, recruited another 450 men and began growing their mustaches to raise money for men's health charities. That year the founders made a donation of almost $41,000 to the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia. In the following years, the number of men (and women!) participating and the amount of money raised grew by the thousands. By 2013, over 4 million "Mo Bros" and "Mo Sistas" were participating in more than 20 countries globally – and they'd raised over $5.5 million for men's health foundations since the project began in 2003. 

    ​How can I participate in Movember?
    The first step to participate in Movember is to sign up on the website and agree to follow the rules. The rules are simple: Start the month clean-shaven, grow a mustache and only a mustache for the entire month, use the mustache as a conversation starter about men's health topics and raise funds for prostate and testicular cancer and mental health. The last rule? Behave like a gentleman. 

    What can I do to grow the perfect mustache?
    To begin growing your perfect 'stache you have to first gather the appropriate barbering tools. Unlike No-Shave November, you are allowed to trim and groom your mustache during Movember (in fact it's encouraged), so you'll need a few mustache management items. Find quality shaving cream for your beard and sideburns, a nice razor, men's grooming scissors and some mustache wax. 

    Then you'll need to decide what sort of mustache you prefer. Your hair type may determine the mustache you can grow – for instance, curly haired men most likely won't be able to pull off a straight and full Tom Selleck style. Also, consider your day-to-day life. If you work in a professional office setting, a handlebar or horseshoe style may not be the way to go. A medium-sized basic 'stache is the most versatile style since it's not too full and not too thin. Play around with it! You likely won't grow a full, thick and glorious mustache by the end of 30 days, but the important thing is that you're having fun for a worthy cause. 

    Remember, if you're a girl you can participate too! Mo Sistas can sign up, join a Mo team and help fundraise mustache-less to support the important men in their life. 

    If you're looking for more professional barbering tips and tricks, barbering school might be right for you. 


  • Men can grow beards for charity during No Shave November. Your complete guide to No Shave November

    If you're interested in enrolling in barber training school, you may have noticed a startling number of guys with extravagant facial hair over the last few Novembers. That's because November is no longer just the month of Thanksgiving and Veterans' Day, it's now celebrated by men growing out their beards and mustaches for charity during Movember and No Shave November. If you want to learn more about what No Shave November is, here's your complete guide:

    What is No Shave November?
    No Shave November is a global movement in which men grow out their facial hair for an entire month to raise awareness for cancer. The idea is that many cancer patients lose their hair, so No Shave November participants embrace their hair growth during the full month to honor them. The participating hairy men then donate the money they save on shaving and cutting their hair to help fight cancer.

    How did No Shave November start?
    No Shave November began in 2009, when its two creators, Rebecca Hill and Bret Ringdahl, decided it would be a great way for anyone and everyone to save a few bucks to donate to cancer charities. Hill and Ringdahl made it into a Facebook page, and less than 50 people participated that year. The campaign has grown into a world-wide movement since then and has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for cancer charities. In 2013, No Shave November began a partnership with the American Cancer Society, so it's now the No. 1 organization to which No Shave participants donate.

    How can you participate?
    It's OK if you didn't start right at the beginning of the month. You can still sign up on the organization's website to participate by yourself or as part of a team. It's $10 to register, and you can make an additional donation at the time you sign up and set a fundraising goal for yourself. No Shave November is a really fun way to raise awareness for cancer, but if you can't participate by growing a beard, you can still make a donation to the American Cancer Society or help raise funds by buying some sweet No Shave November gear. 

    What are the rules?
    According to No Shave November's website, "there are no rules." The organization encourages people to start the month clean-shaven and try not to groom at all during the 30 days, but they recognize people might need to groom their facial hair for work or other circumstances.

    If you're interested in barber training, No Shave November is a really cool movement related to that field. Help spread the word and get others involved by talking about it with your peers in person and on social media.
