Tired Leg and Yoga Massage

Tired legs massage
Lactic acid--the metabolic waste product produced by your body when you exercise hard--pools in the muscles, giving them a dead leg feel.
Although lactic acid is naturally removed through blood circulation, it can take up to several days to leave your system depending on how fit you are.
Massage is the answer. By increasing blood circulation through massage, the acid is flushed out of tired or strained muscles much faster than your body could under its own power, equating to faster recovery and better performance. Joe Friel, noted author of The Cyclist's Training Bible, highly recommends using massage as a recovery technique.
Yoga enhancing massage
This sixty minute session consists of a combination of relaxing Swedish massage techniques with healing energy work and stretching. When you want your mind, body and spirit to feel healthy, yoga and massage are great ways to achieve that.
Before yoga, massage helps provide the warmth and stretch your muscles may need in order to hold a pose longer. If you have trouble concentrating during a yoga session, massage can make it easier to sustain focus by removing your attention from the day’s distractions.
Massage after yoga creates a powerfully relaxing experience, after which you may feel so tranquil you’ll want to bask in that peaceful feeling for the rest of the day. Since massage is equally effective whether you’re fully conscious or drifting off, you may want to schedule it when you can enjoy more leisure time.
