There can be a lot of myths circling around massage, below we debunk just a few!
1. Massage can spread cancer.
Logically, this is almost impossible. One would need to crush the tumor directly in order for it to shed metastatic material. Most oncologists agree that individuals going through cancer treatment can realize extraordinary benefits from healing touch. When done correctly, massage is safe, but there are a few notable exceptions. Do not get a message if you have an open wound, any blood clots in a vein or a bleeding disorder such as low platelet counts.
2. Massages can help to eliminate cellulite
Unfortunately, there is absolutely no scientific backing to this claim. Cellulite is connected to your nutrition, activity levels, as well as your genes. It does not indicate any medical issues.
Massage is great to help alleviate post-working pain and body stress, which helps in your body's recovery process. By alleviating body stress from exercising, this will allow your body to heal faster. This helps to promote muscle repair and growth and helps you to keep up with your exercise routine. This makes it possible for you to achieve your fitness goals in a more effective way.
3. All the different types of massages basically do the same thing
