SEPTEMBER 27, 2012, SAN FRANCISCO, CA. -- On October 14th, 2012, Nike celebrates the ninth year of the Nike Women’s Marathon in San Francisco. Earth and Sky Oasis – a five star rated business offering therapeutic massage, and a neighbor of the Nike flagship store on Union Square – is proud to have been invited to support the 25,000 women who will be running this year to raise money and awareness for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
“Running a marathon puts tremendous strain on the body,” says Jill Jodar, owner of Earth and Sky Oasis, “and runners have always understood the importance of being meticulous about their diet, hydration, sleep patterns, and training regimen. More recently, runners have become aware of the importance of therapeutic bodywork as a critical component to maximize performance and avoid both short and long-term injuries.”
To encourage runners to adopt regular bodywork as part of their training, tapering phase and post-race recovery strategy, Earth and Sky Oasis was selected to offer an introductory discount to participants in this year’s event.
Jill Jodar continued, “Once again, we’re honored to get the call from Nike this year and we’re proud of all 25,000 women who are participating. Earth and Sky Oasis is focused on the health and wellness of our clients, and we’re looking forward to partnering with runners to create customized bodywork programs that integrate with their personal goals, keep them healthy, and keep them running.”
