Massage Reduces Muscle Tension
Muscle tension is a common problem for the average adult. Some of the things that can lead to muscle tension include poor posture, physically demanding jobs, repetitive motion, and stress. We often find ourselves seeking out ways to relieve that tension in the long and short term.
Treating Muscle Tension with Massage
Among the many benefits of massage, the most notable benefit is its ability to alleviate pain and soreness in the muscles.
A massage can relieve muscle tension by working out areas where the muscle is contracted or sore, thereby improving your quality of life.
Massage therapy uses hands or specialized tools to rhythmically knead, rub, and stroke muscles, increasing circulation. The increased blood flow delivers oxygen and nutrients and helps muscles eliminate waste products such as lactic acid. This creates overall relaxation and a reduction in muscle tension.
