Massage therapy increases circulation, bloody supply, and nutrition to the body's muscles. Critical to any sports or exercise program, massage therapy helps circulate more oxygen throughout the body. Muscles that have optimum circulation are less susceptible to injury. In addition, massage therapy can compensate, in part, for a lack of exercise and muscular contraction.
