When we are stressed out, our muscles can’t help but tense up and become stiff as our body inadvertently goes into ‘fight or flight’ mode creating a build up in toxins such as lactic acid and causes aches and pains around the body.
Massage Therapy can help to release this tension leaving us feeling calm, relaxed and wonderfully refreshed by taking the time to look after our bodies and listening to what it is saying to us.
We all know how much better we feel after a massage, not only more relaxed but looser and our aches and pains are less. It has been long established that Massage increases blood flow to the treated muscles, speeding up the delivery of the nutrients they need to function properly and facilitating the removal of metabolic waste that can cause pain and delay recovery.
Research is now showing us that it has deeper benefits in helping the body to heal. Studies before and after workouts have shown that Massage not only seems to ‘turn off’ genes associated with inflammation, but also stimulates a gene responsible for Mitochondrial development. The Mitochondria play a huge role in cell growth and energy production.
Of course, the skill of the practitioner plays an enormous part in this, knowing which muscles, joints, and fascial systems to target and having the experience to be sympathetic to the tissues. The right hands though can be incredibly effective at helping with relaxation, Joint and back pain, head and neck problems and many other issues.
