A benefit of massage is improved recovery. Muscles can become damaged for a variety of reasons, most commonly by injury, surgery or over use. When muscles are damaged, the body’s natural healing process is activated aiming to repair damaged tissues and fibres. Very often, healing can be slowed down due to a range of reasons, decreasing recovery. Common reasons healing is reduced include swelling, poor circulation, muscle fatigue and a build-up of tension. When recovery is decreased, pain can increase worsening the effects of injury. Our massage therapists at Altius improve recovery through massage to help decrease pain, reduce tension and improve circulation
