Feeling sore or achy after your workout?
Want to heal faster and increase your endurance?
Sure, massage promotes relaxation and allows you to unwind after a stressful week. But many do not realize that in addition to making you feel rejuvenated, massage provides a variety of health benefits. And one of these benefits includes improving your workout!
Many professionals and researchers support that massage can, and should be included in every active individual's wellness routine. It is recommended that massage be utilized as a healing modality, particularly for those who are active in fitness.
According to the American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA), research has shown that in relation to exercise and athletic participation, massage can:
-Reduce muscle tension, stiffness and soreness, fatigue after exercise, and swelling
-Help with monitoring muscle tone
-Increase range of motion and flexibility
-Shorten recovery time between workouts
-Improve soft tissue function
-Support the recovery of heart rate variability
-Enhance exercise and athletic performance
-Help prevent injuries when massage is received regularly
