Tight or Painful Muscles
A beneficial therapy, massage can relieve pain and, in combination with medical attention, help heal certain conditions and help prevent their return.
Massage is one of the best known cures for stress. The reduction of stress decreases your likelihood of injury and illness, gives you more energy, helps you sleep better, and improves your outlook on life. Due to its ability to relieve stress, massage is a great supportive therapy for people in psychological counseling or addiction treatment.
Massage relieves muscle tightness including short-term cramps and constantly clenched jaws or tight shoulders. Massage stretches and kneads the muscles while simultaneously stimulating the nervous system to relax even more.
Massage releases restrictions in the muscles leaving your body free to assume its natural posture. Massage also relieves the contracted muscles and pain caused by abnormal spinal curvatures such as scoliosis.
Massage increases circulation which reduces inflammation and removes waste products from injured areas. Certain massage techniques can reduce scar tissue and limit scar formation.
Massage helps prevent injuries caused by stressing unbalanced muscles or by favoring a painful, restricted area.
After vigorous exercise, waste products build up in your muscles to make you sore – massage flushes out the waste products to alleviate soreness.
