Today, I wanted to share the five benefits of regular massage and the one myth I often hear when it comes to it.
Here are the five benefits:
The number one myth about massage therapy is that it flushes out lactic acid. The same is true for foam rolling. Lactic acid, or lactate, is a muscle byproduct. It doesn’t stay around very long and it’s not the type of acid that you may think of when you hear the word. It also isn’t what causes the burn in your muscles during or after exercise.
Massage doesn’t flush that out, but it does improve circulation. During my college days, I did long hikes in Lynchburg and would always get a massage after. My recovery was great every time.
You should get a massage on a regular basis if you want to experience all the benefits above!
It’s been a long time since my wife or I have found a local massage therapist we really liked, but we recently hired one at our clinic who we absolutely love.
