Massage & Recovery

Massage is a great way to sooth the body and aid it in the recovery from injury as the massage strokes have a powerfully calming effect on both the muscles and nervous system. Additionally, it aids circulation of the blood and therefore aids the health of the muscles by increasing blood supply to them and removing any build up of toxins that have gathered in the muscles, while also helping the body break down any adhesions.
