Massage Therapy can assist in preventing new injuries by relaxing stressed, tired or tight muscles which can result from playing sports, workouts and everyday activities.
Massage releases restrictions in muscles, joints and surrounding fascia, freeing your body to return to a more natural posture. Massage can also relieve pain caused by abnormal spinal curvatures such as scoliosis.
Massage can help relieve many types of muscle tightness or discomfort, from a short-term muscle cramp to tight shoulders or pain caused by a habitually clenched jaw. Massage has the ability to release tension by manipulating the muscles and the surrounding connective tissue.
Massage is one of the best known remedies for stress. It relaxes the body, increases circulation to the organs, improves mood, increases energy and promotes natural healing.
Muscles can become tense enough to restrict blood flow and nerve function in the arms and legs. When this happens you can experience a tingling sensation in the hands, fingers, feet or toes. This tightness can also reduce the blood flow to the brain and cause light headedness and/or dizzy spells. Manipulating the muscles can reduce the tightness and alleviate the restrictions to bring blood flow and nerve function back to normal.
