Who doesn’t love a good massage? I know I do, and now there is scientific evidence that a massage can aid muscle healing. In fact a massage acts just like an anti-inflammatory drug. “A massage might enhance some of the favourable benefits that we get from exercise.” So after your NJ personal training session or that grueling tennis match, go out and get yourself a massage. Not only will your body recover quicker from exercise, the anti-inflammatory signals released by a massage also improves the ability of muscle cells to make new mitochondria — the furnaces that convert food into energy. That equals more weight loss! A win-win situation all around!
