Massage is the most fundamental of all healing techniques. When we injure ourselves, we automatically rub the injured area. It’s a natural reaction. Massage encourages healing by promoting the flow of blood and lymph fluid to the region, which in turn rids the body tissues of waste products. Other benefits of massage include relief of muscle tension, stimulation of the nervous system and stress reduction.
Many people believe that pain is an inevitable outcome to physical activity such as sport. That’s where massage can help, by reducing or eliminating what appears to be exercise induced pain, speeding up muscle recovery by removing irritating waste products and supplying oxygen and nutrients through the blood which enables quicker recovery. This means that you can train unrestricted and more efficiently.
