Our muscles feel sore after an intense workout, lifting more than what you're used to or trying something for the first time of working your muscles in an unusual way. The soreness is usually a good thing and means your muscles are building. However, sore muscles can be painful. With a relaxing massage, you can easily make the pain go away.

Why does massage work in taking away body pain? Massage reduces inflammation and stimulates cell repair, which helps muscle cells recover from injury, according to a study published in "Science Translational Medicine". What this means it that massage helps muscles adapt to increased exercise. So the next time you're sore, don't pop an aspirin since pills can adversely affect your muscles by masking inflammation and soreness. What you need to do instead is get a massage.
