It feels good because it is good for you!
Massage has been shown to positively affect the cells in your body, reducing inflammation and promoting the growth of new energy-packed muscle. So not only does massage relieve and prevent tension, build your awareness of your body and treat injury – it also helps you recover from tiredness and grow stronger.
A 2012 study from McMaster University in Hamilton, Canada tested athletes after strenuous exercise, applying massage to one leg while the other was rested.
Lead author Mark Tarnopolsky and his team concluded that “when administered to skeletal muscle that has been acutely damaged through exercise, massage therapy appears to be clinically beneficial by reducing inflammation and promoting mitochondrial biogenesis.”
