Biopsies prove Massage contributes to Muscular Healing
Massage actually changes the way our genes behave and contributes to muscular healing, new research has found. Scientists had 11 male volunteers ride stationary bikes until they were exhaused. then they massaged one thigh on each man for 10 minutes and took biopsies from both legs. In samples from massaged muscles they found that genes linked to inflammation and soreness wer 3 times less active than in the untreated leg. The massages also caused a 30% increase in a gene that helps muscle cells create mitochondria--cellular organs that produce energy-- potentially boosting muscle recovery. Wow!! Read the study:
