* Studies have shown that treatment massage can enhance performance through increased range of motion, improved muscle strength, and enhanced proprioceptive ability. Treatment massage reduces inflammatory cytokine compounds in muscles and stimulate mitochondrial function, thus enhancing muscular repair. Ultimately, treatment massage helps not just exercise-induced muscle injury, but swelling and pain associated with other medical conditions as well.
