Massage Can Help Build Bigger Muscles

23 May 2012 No Comment

Perhaps you’ve been to get a massage after someone got you a gift package for your honeymoon, anniversary, etc.  Those massage sessions can be very soothing and relaxing, so much so that many fall asleep like a new-born baby right on the table.  However, those are what are classified as “relaxation massages”.  However, intense, muscle-therapy type massages can be painful or uncomfortable, but may do wonders for your muscle mass.

A column in M&F reported, “Just 10 minutes of massage can reduce muscle tissue inflammation and speed recovery and healing, according to a new study.  Researchers at McMaster University found that in addition to reducing inflammation, massage signals mitochondria within muscles to multiply, healing tissue faster and getting you back into the gym sooner.

One piece of exercise equipment used frequently in the massage field are sculpting bands.
