  • Reduce the recovery period following an injury.

Physical benefits:

  • Increased circulation
  • Re-alignment of scar tissue
  • Increased flexibility
  • Improved recovery

Physiological benefits:

  • Increased relaxation
  • Inhibition of pain

Psychological benefits:

  • Reduced anxiety and stress levels
  • Increased awareness and excitability; for example, if done prior to a sporting event.
