Massage is beneficial in treating a wide range of soft tissue conditions, including muscle spasms and pain, soreness from injury and headaches.
The Many Benefits of Remedial Massage Therapy
Massage works with muscles and tendons, using different techniques such as muscle kneading and compression to lessen tension in the muscles. This increases blood circulation and helps the body flush out cellular debris, which speeds tissue repair and aids in healing.
Increases blood flow to the injured area:
This allows for faster transportation of nutrients and the cells needed in the healing process to the site of the injury.
Increases lymphatic flow:
The lymphatic system carries waste and debris away from the site of on injury. It is also responsible for swelling which puts pressure on nerve endings, causing pain. The more quickly the lymphatics can flow and drain away, the more quickly the swelling and pain will reduce.
Stress and tension hinder the healing process and disrupts sleep at night, the time your body works best recovering from injury.
The more tense and tight muscles are, the less blood flow is available to flow through them. Blood contains all the oxygen and nutrients your muscles need to operate healthily. A restriction in the blood flow results in aches and pain and creates susceptibility to injury.
Breaks down scar tissue and fibrous adhesions:
When a past injury heals of its own accord, fibrous tissue can develop at the site of the original problem. Using specific remedial techniques, this fibrous tissue can be broken down allowing joints and muscles to function more freely and thereby increasing mobility. It may also reduce any pain created by restriction of or friction on the tissues surrounding these joints and muscles.
