Muscles tighten due to stress, injury, poor circulation and repetitive movement. Tightness brings pain and discomfort. It restricts movement. Neglected, these conditions become habitual and do not go away by themselves.
Massage Therapy has an amazing effect on your body. Relaxing muscle tension and optimizing your heart rate, blood pressure and circulation, massage therapy counteracts stress.
Regular massage therapy teaches you to listen to your body. You learn to recognize your body's warning signs of stress and tension and are able to do preventive care, keeping yourself healthy.

Massage increases circulation, strengthens the immune system and reduces chronic pain. It stretches and loosens tight muscles and connective tissue. It breaks down scar tissue resulting from injury, surgery, etc. and prevents further scar development.
Tight muscles cannot hold much fluid or allow fluid to pass through. Think of a sponge squeezed tightly. This decreases blood flow, putting more strain on your heart, creating fatigue, soreness and chronic pain.
