Do you work out on a regular basis or are you thinking about it? If yes, you might need a muscle recovery massage and here is why. Massages are widely believed to enhance muscle recovery after vigorous exercises. A terrible tight spot or an injury, massages help speed your recovery and the best part is, you can do all of this in the comfort of your home!
1. Why are massages important?
Recovery from Work out
When body burns its carbohydrates for energy, lactate is produced. With regular exercise, lactate accumulates in the body which causes muscle aches and decreased performance. Also, your body forms muscle knots that are known as Trigger Points, which lead to Myofascial Pain Syndrome. All in all, muscles need relaxation too. A Trigger Point ball is a great tool to help release and achieve melting of minor aches to muscular tissue and trigger points. Maji Sports Natural Rubber Trigger Point Ball comes with instructions and is small and portable. It’s like foam rolling; however, it allows for a more targeted and more precise relief to aching muscles.
Recovery from Injuries
Sports injury massage or any injury massage can help relieve stiffness, restore movement and relax your muscles much faster. Why focus on soreness and anxiety when you can heal in a healthy and comfortable way?
Plantar fasciitis is one of the most common causes of heel pain. It involves inflammation of a thick band of tissue that runs across the bottom of your foot and connects your heel bone to your toes (plantar fascia). Plantar fasciitis commonly causes stabbing pain in the morning.
Risk factors are:
Standing on your feet for too long

How is Foam Rolling helpful in recovery?
From a once exclusive technique used by professional athletes, coaches and therapists, foam rolling is now an everyday practice for people at all levels of fitness. Self-myofascial release, also known as “foam rolling” is self-massage to release muscle tightness or trigger points. To assist in the recovery of muscles, pressure is applied to specific points in your body.
When rolling or working on sore muscles you will experience discomfort or pain. Think of it like the pain you get while stretching. It should be uncomfortable, but not unbearable, and when you are done it should feel better. Foam rolling can be easily done at home by yourself and is one of the best options for muscle recovery.
