A little more on the benefits of massage after walking in the park.

-Massage can help with circulation – when we exercise it is easy to forget to nurture your body and repair the muscle cells.

-Massage can help with recovery – muscles are torn down during exercise and can cause pain or discomfort. A massage can help regenerate cells and make you feel like a million dollars.

-Massage can help calm the mind –  the mind is something people neglect to nurture, and promoting blood flow along with massage has been shown to increase positivism in massaged subjects.
