MASSAGE THERAPY WILL SOOTHE SORE MUSCLES
When activities like exercise, running, training, cycling, or other sports and events leave your muscles feeling sore, weak, fatigued and stiff, massage can help restore them to a balanced, more efficient state. Massage stretches and lengthens shortened muscles and reduces spasm. Its gentle kneading improves circulation which speeds up the removal of waste products that make you sore, and brings in the oxygen and nutrients your muscles need to rejuvenate. A deeply relaxing massage also produces a relaxed, calm state of mind which allows for a deeper, more restful sleep, allowing your tissues the time they need to repair naturally.
Massage can help your body prepare for strenuous events or sports. Usually within one hour of the event, your therapist will work your arms and legs, jostling them and using compression and palm pressure. After the event, after you've cooled down, a post-event massage is suggested to calm, relax and ease the pain and soreness, and remove the metabolic waste built up during vigorous activity. Many sports and fitness enthusiasts rely on regular massage as an essential part of their health maintenance routine.
