Exactly, the average recreational dive does not cause much damage.
I almost see a ~20 meter dive with no hard swimming as a type of hyperbaric recovery session.

Why do you think they go well together?

Reading some of articles provided by Duke Dive Medicine, any research into this topic seems to have been from an extreme end.

I imagine the impact of conservative recreational scuba diving within safe limits is minimal, and most likely offset by the sheer enjoyment and reduced stress levels I feel when I dive…

Reduced stress = increased gains :)
