Living Right: Integrate Massage Into Your Exercise Routine

After a winter spent mostly indoors, an increase in physical activity and exercise can leave muscles feeling sore and overworked. Now, a new study shows massage therapy can reduce inflammation after exercise, in turn reducing the pain that might accompany a new work out plan.

It's no secret that regular exercise is key to maintaining overall health and wellness. Now we know that integrating massage therapy into your routine can help ease the inflammation that results from exercise-induced muscle damage. Finding a massage therapist is easy. Visit AMTA's Find A Massage Therapist national locator service to find a qualified AMTA member massage therapist near you. Narrow your search by technique and location. No matter what your level of physical activity, you can find the right massage therapist to fit your needs.
