The Benefits of Massage
Massage improves circulation, allowing blood and oxygen to flow to an area of the body to speed up healing. This process also reduces inflammation and strengthens the immune system. Massage is also preventative for injuries. It loosens stiff joints, which helps you avoid serious injuries in the future.
