Benefits of Massage

Massage has many benefits and should be incorporated into your fitness regimen. Sometimes after working out, besides stretching, you need a massage to have you feel relaxed, to rid your muscles of knots and tension, and to soothe your muscles, joints, and tendons.

There is a lot of information in books and the Internet on massage, so I will not list them all here. Some of the benefits of massage are:

Provide psychological relaxation
Stretch muscles
Increase blood circulation efficacy
Relieve tensions
Increase joint flexibility
Release endorphins
Emotional sense of calm and being cared for
