The Benefits of Massage

Anyone who routinely stretches their physical limits through exercise, strength training and aerobics can benefit from massage. There are others who do strenuous activities not classified as exercise. Examples include mothers with small children, gardeners, laborers, trade people and others who stress their body in daily life. Incorporating massage into your conditioning program has many benefits. Massage therapy helps get the body into good shape, thereby promoting faster recovery from muscle strain.
