Massage Therapy Can Aid Post-Workout Muscle Recovery

Many people may think of a massage as strictly a form of relaxation or an occasional treat for oneself but it can also be a powerful complement to any workout, especially strenuous ones.

The health benefits of exercise are many and undisputed. Following a healthy regimen, however, may result in some wear and tear on your muscles. Getting a massage in Folsom can alleviate soreness and stiffness. It also helps prevent injuries and enhances healing, enabling you to push your body harder with every workout.

What Happens During Exercise
