We All Need the Human Touch
One of the best ways to recover from a strenuous workout is to treat your body to a massage. There's nothing wrong with getting pampered. In fact, massage therapy is one of the healthiest allies for your body, so much that it's almost become more of a need than a want.A few of the many ways in which massages help to rejuvenate your body include stretching weak and tight muscles, increasing joint flexibility, relaxing tired, overused muscles, and alleviating stress. Massages are great for relieving pain as they create changes in the body's chemistry, thereby reducing pain throughout the body. Studies show that people who suffer from fibromyalgia had less of a pain-related chemical called P in their saliva after undergoing massages. They also experienced a reduction in discomfort.
