“Motion is Lotion”. The more sedentary our lifestyle, the more chance there is of injury. As we age we are even further prone to stiff joints. Our bodies were made to move. The more our bodies move, the more fluid and lubricated the muscles, joints, tendons, and ligaments remain. The kneading and stretching of muscles, connective tissue, through massage helps to maintain movement and fluidity creating flexibility in the joints that prevents injury and chronic pain. For the average person that means more range of motion with less discomfort. For athletes, massage and stretching mean higher performance levels and faster recovery from workouts.
