Medical massage can cut your healing time in half by decreasing pain, improving range of motion, and reducing scarring within ligaments, tendons, and muscles.
Research has shown that massage can reduce heart rate, lower blood pressure, and increase blood circulation and lymph flow," according to the University of California San Francisco Medical Center. "It also relaxes muscles, improves range of motion, and increases endorphins, which can enhance medical treatment."
