James Harrison spends about $600k each year on massages, which the Cincinnati Bengals player calls “body work.” Basically, that’s a fancy word these days.
In fact, he loves them so much he brought an interesting nickname upon himself.
“I’ve always been what everybody’d like to call — excuse my English — is massage whore,” Harrison said to the Bengals team website. “I can’t think of nothing else. They done called me it so long I’m starting to believe it.”
However, there is a method to his massage proclivities.
“I rent a hyperbaric chamber when I’m in Arizona. I have massages and I bring people in from New York, Arizona to where I’m at. There’s that cost,” Harrison said.
“I get body work almost every single day except Saturday and Sunday. I have a homeopathic doctor and I do a lot of homeopathic things. It’s just a lot, supplements, so on and so forth.”
I guess there’s nothing strange about homeopathic.
But seriously, these guys use their muscles until they hurt, so whatever works as an NFL player.
