What Are the Benefits of Sports Therapy Massage?

A sports massage releases endorphins, which are natural chemicals found in the brain. These lift your mood, helping you feel better. The touch of the therapist and the pressure of the massage also reduce pain. If your muscles are sore, you should also rest and spend time recovering after exercise. Massage can help accelerate the recovery process by breaking down the chemical that causes muscle pain, lactic acid. The body can then dispose of it more easily. Studies show that massage improves the body’s range of motion and decreases soreness whether done before or after a workout or exercise.
