Does Massage Effective For Recovery

You must have heard, "Train hard but recover harder." recovering from training is crucial to improve performance in the long term. You can recover from intense training by following a structured diet with enough protein and proper sleep. But have you ever thought is there a way to recover from training apart from the obvious ones mentioned above Data from 99 studies, considering different recovery methods, concluded that massage immediately after the training session seems to reduce muscle soreness and perceived fatigue. But there was only a small decrease in several markers of muscle damage (ex-inflammation). The major difference was how the participants feel about their fatigue levels. At this point, it might be worth considering going for a massage immediately after the training session but not to forgot that the actual decrease in muscle damage was not that significant. And even to get the full benefit of recovery from the massage, you need to go for massages post-workout after every training session, which is not practical for most of us time-wise and money-wise too. Maybe you can use this tool when you feel you are too fatigued to get the "FEEL GOOD FACTOR." Reference - https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/29755363
