As a Sports Therapist, I decided to purchase a mini massage gun from the company 'Theragun' and I love it! It is the best, especially after an intense workout. They also have larger massage guns with amazing features.
Benefits of a massage:
Increases circulation (blood and lymphatic flow).
Increase flexibility and mobility by reducing pain, muscle tension, spasms, stiffness, and DOMS (Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness), which in return can promote a quicker recovery.
Helps to break up scar tissue.
Promotes a sense of well-being.
Massage can be used for pre-performance, post-performance, during training, or for rehabilitation for an injury or dysfunction.
Rest and recovery is just as important as putting in hard work. What do you like to do for recovery after an intense workout or training session?
