Injury Recovery

Massage to injured tissues can assist in recovery from acute and chronic injuries. Some of the ways that massage can help is by releasing contracted muscles and fascial constrictions, decreasing the development of scar tissue, and increasing blood flow and lymph drainage. The increase in range of motion and function that massage provides can also be an aid to recovery.

Of course, with injuries that require a doctor's care, asking your doctor about massage is an important first step.
