Massage can contribute to a quicker and more complete recovery. A faster recovery enables people participating in exercise to continue training sooner and reducing risk of injury.
A quicker and more complete recovery enables people to continue training sooner. In addition, massage post-workout can provide reduced tension, removal of waste products, increased range of movement, and improved relaxation. Our massage therapist, Amy, provides massage therapy services to treat a range of conditions.
A massage stimulates blood circulation, which helps bring freshly oxygenated blood to different areas of your body. The blood that’s rich with oxygen helps feed tissues and wash away toxic waste in your muscles. After exercise, lactic acid builds up in your muscles and causes soreness, but massage can help stimulate blood flow to reduce that buildup! Massages also can decrease inflammation. Micro-tears in your muscles cause inflammation after substances called cytokines are released into the body. Massages help to stop those chemicals from being released, which decreases inflammation more rapidly. When inflammation is eased, so is pain and soreness!
