Massage therapy releases muscle tension. When you're stressed, your muscles tighten in response, and when the stress ends, your muscles generally relax. But if you're constantly stressed, it's likely your muscles can stay slightly, permanently tensed--muscle therapy undoes that.
Improve Circulation and Flexibility
Good circulation brings damaged, tense muscles the oxygen rich blood they need to heal. Trigger point therapy facilitates circulation because the pressure created by the technique actually moves blood through the congested areas. The release of this same pressure causes new blood to flow in.
Through combined therapeutic massage and trigger point therapy, muscle therapy session will help relieve pain by pressing and rubbing the muscles and soft tissues of your body.
By improving the body’s circulation, massage helps the body’s tissues receive adequate nutrition and improves venous return. This optimizes toxin removal and can be accomplished through the use of petrissage and effleurage movements used in this technique.
