“It’s a common belief that massage is better, but it isn’t better. Massage and exercise had the same benefits,” said Lars Andersen, the lead author of the study and a professor at the National Research Center for the Working Environment in Copenhagen.
Earlier research has shown that massage can offer some relief from work out soreness.
