As the spouse of a message therapist you cut athletes legs open, took biopsies and did the analysis to determine the biochemical mechanisms behind massage's salutary effect?

Vigorous exercise causes tiny tears in muscle fibers, leading to an immune reaction — inflammation — as the body gets to work repairing the injured cells. So the researchers screened the tissue from the massaged and unmassaged legs to compare their repair processes, and find out what difference massage would make.
Serious question, then. Doesn't this extract from your link indicate that inflammation might have something to do with the healing process? I know what it does if it lasts too long, but the article didn't precisely say inf

I think it does. It states that taking anti-inflammatories is known to inhibit the recovery process. I've read that elsewhere as well. It's pretty well established that massage is beneficial to recover, but this is the first investigation into the biochemical basis of it that I'm aware of.

No, as the spouse of a massdage therapist, I have known that a massage after a physical activity can be beneficial. The study just scientifically proved it.
