Massage changes the genetic make up of your muscles, reducing inflammation and promoting cell recovery of injured muscles

Interesting scientific research shows that massage actually changes the genetic make up of your muscles! It is no real news that massage significantly reduces inflammation and increases cell recovery following exercise but now it’s also scientifically proven.

A recent study demonstrated that massaged muscle tissue (which had been injured during exercise before) showed 30% more genes that promote muscle repair and three times less genes associated with inflammation than untreated muscles.

This is great news!

Massage is not only enjoyable, but it really helps your body recover from injuries. Treat yourself in the name of science or just for pleasure. 🙂
