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 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.
