Will massage complement my training?

Using Massage

Massage can be a great addition to your training routine, but make sure you get the right kind of massage. Somebody who specializes in sports massage is probably your best bet. Avoid getting a deep tissue massage the day before an event, or you may be too sore to do your best. And self- massage is better than no massage.

That is very true. If you never had a massage before and have a deep tissue massage it could make you feel alittle under the weather. Take a hot shower or sit in the sauna afterward.

Good Advice, I am a Massage Therapist and that is something I would tell my clients.
