Massage can help improve flexibility. The major benefits of massage for the muscles include greater relaxation, a decrease in knots, a decrease in tension, and an increase in blood supply to help flush out toxins. All of these benefits perfectly prime the muscle to achieve an increase in muscle length during a stretch. The stretch (which should be held for 30 seconds) should be performed following the massage for the muscle.

Body massage techniques, like the movement of ligaments and tendons, impart greater flexibility to the body. Relieving aching, strained muscles after working out  loosens them up and allows them to move with greater flexibility – which also helps stave off injuries as well.

When you participate a massage therapy program consistently, the certain points in muscles that cause pain are loosened and relaxed, joints have greater freedom, and pressure points are relieved. This allows the body to position itself in a healthy and natural posture, and when this happens, you can then avoid the certain movements and positions that develop over time as a reaction to the pain.

When you allow the body to improve healthy and natural movements this can be one of the most beneficial results of massage therapy. Poor posture produces many aches and pains. A lot of this occurs while driving, sitting at a desk for a long period of time, and sometimes even just standing still.  Poor posture can contribute to a number of physical aches and pains. An increase and body stress and muscle breakdown can occur over time.
