Working Out More? Unwind with Massage!

Published January 10th, 2023 by Dr. Markson

If you’re keeping up with your fitness routine, first off: Keep it up! Now that you’re working out more, you might wake up feeling sore more often than you have in the past. And there’s no better way to reward yourself for your good progress in the gym than allowing yourself to unwind with massage therapy. A post-workout massage is a great treat, and it also helps you stay on the right track with your health and wellness. 

Why You Should Enjoy a Post-Workout Massage

If you’re working out more frequently these days, you’re pretty familiar with delayed onset muscle soreness. DOMS is the root cause of feeling sore a day or two after your last workout. But a post-workout massage can help minimize these symptoms, which allows you to recover more quickly. 

Massage helps increase blood flow to the muscles, and that aids in muscle repair. When you work out, you’re actually creating microtears in the muscles that your body repairs and strengthens. Massage can help your progress, and it may even help prevent injuries from getting in your way. 

Injuries happen in the gym, even when you’re following the right tips and taking proper precautions. If an injury occurs, massage may help you get back at it faster. For the same reasons that post-workout massages help aid in recovery, a chiropractic massage can help your body heal faster from muscular injuries. 

More Benefits of Massage to Consider in 2023

If you’ve earmarked 2023 as the year where you take your health and wellness back, chiropractic massage can be a beacon. And it’s not just physical health—when you unwind with massage, you’re reducing your stress levels and allowing yourself to relax. 

Taking time to let go and put your health in the hands of a trained chiropractic massage therapist can result in better energy, improved focus, and better sleep. That all adds up to feeling better throughout your week, which lets you be more productive during one of the busier times of the year.
