Health and wellness is more than a goal, it’s a lifestyle. Our mantra at the ACADEMY is “TRAIN RIGHT FOR LIFE” and part of making sure that you are able to train right, for life, is to ensure that you also get the recovery you need.
In addition to proper nutrition (fuelright) and rest, muscles need rejuvenation and pampering. This week, lets focus on some of the benefits Massage Therapy can bring to you healthy, active lifestyle.
1. Reduce soreness
Massage therapy effectively relieves and helps manage pain, both acute and chronic.
2. Help prevent future injuries during exercise
An improved blood flow increases the amount of oxygen available for muscles to use during an event. Increasing oxygen energizes muscles as well as keeping them strong and healthy helping prevent injury.
3. Increase muscle recovery
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!
1. Counteracts bad posture
Massage can counteract the damage from sitting or having poor posture for extended periods of time! Because of constant forward-orientation.
2. Relieves pain
Massage can reduce pain and anxiety for people with chronic illnesses. It can help treat conditions including stress-related tension, cancer-related fatigue, sleep disorders, high blood pressure, diabetes, low back pain and depression.
