The healing power of touch is instinctive in human nature & when we formalize that instinctive touch into massage, it becomes a powerful healing tool.
When muscles overworked, waste products such as lactic acid can accumulate in them, causing soreness, stiffness & even muscle spasm. Massage improves circulation, which increases blood flow, bringing fresh oxygen to body tissues. This can assist elimination of waste products, speeds healing after injury, and enhance recovery from disease.
