Massage therapy is pretty self-explanatory, I mean, who doesn’t need a massage? Also, the science behind massage therapy is very straightforward: tired, tight, flexed and exhausted muscles tend to stay in a tightly constricted state longer due to inflammation and lactic acid build up in the muscle tissue. This muscle tissue needs to release and be relieved of the excess fluid build up in order to return to a non-tightly wound state, and properly recover. In order to accelerate muscle recovery as growth, local and physical stimulation must be applied. Plus massages feel great!
