Whether you’re just starting to exercise or you’ve been at it for years, you may be sore after hitting the gym. Massage can relieve muscle soreness and inflammation that can occur as the result of exercising.
Massage is also beneficial in improving flexibility and range of motion, which can actually help you perform better and make your body less prone to injury at the gym. Looser muscles, joints and tendons are less likely to snap under pressure. Massage helps stimulate the production of the body’s natural joint lubricants, making stretching and movement in general easier.
