LP PT FIT HUB now has its own treatment room so there has never been a better time to treat your body to a sports massage.
Many of us have experienced the after effects of a good workout, or even from our job and some of these effects are not so pleasant. These include the aches and pains we can get from pushing ourselves to achieve results, unfortunately the side effects of exercise can last for days. It can be difficult to carry on with daily tasks the day after exercise due to the aches and pains – it can even be a challenge to walk up the stairs.
Having a massage doesn’t just make you feel good. There are a lot more benefits you may not know about.
These are my top 4 benefits:
- Pain relief
A massage will help you prevent post workout pain and injury by decreasing the soreness of your muscles.
- Speedy recovery
Research has proven that having a massage after exercise can speed up recovery time twice as fast as regular rest, this is due to the improved blood flow and nutrients to the body. A post workout massage can unlock your muscles – this means your original range of motion is restored. This is important if you want to perform your exercises more efficiently..
- Eliminates toxins
During exercise the body accumulates lactic acid – this is a contributor to muscle soreness and early fatigue during a workout. Getting a massage will help break up the lactic acid in your body and remove it from your muscles.
You should not only seek a massage for a faster recovery – but you also deserve a reward after a hard and strenuous workout. Having a reward at the end of exercise will keep you motivated to do exercise more regularly. A massage also helps you improve the quality of your sleep. A good night’s sleep prevents fatigue and gives you the extra energy you need for another day of physical activity.
