If you have ever had a massage you will be aware that it loosens up your muscles and gives you a great feeling of well-being but have you ever wondered why it is so good??
Massage stretches tissues releasing tension and improves your tissue elasticity.
Increased tension within the tissues can cause pain. Massage can help to reduce this in a number of ways and can encourage the release of endorphins, the bodies own feel-good hormone!
Muscles relax after massage because of the heat generated by the massage and by the improved circulation and stretching achieved by the massage.
When stress builds up relaxation becomes more difficult and tension builds up in the muscles which can cause aching, feelings of tiredness and listlessness. Massage can break into this cycle and cause a relaxation response.
By improving the circulation massage helps to remove the waste products from your tissues and helps the muscles take up oxygen and other nutrients to help them recover more rapidly.
