This was fun, filming the massage for Jon Jones, just before he left for his “media tour” for his next fight, UFC 197 in Las Vegas, April 23.
It’s hard to finish a massage for Jon in less than 90 minutes because his legs, back, neck and arms need plenty of attention. I have been massaging Jon for several years now, and it’s easier to know what an athlete needs after working with them for a good amount of time.
Jon is a great athlete to work with. Not only is he always kind, thoughtful, playful and respectful, he listens and does his stretching homework between treatments so that massage really helps him recover quicker.
As always, Good luck!!
