Why we recommend Massage therapy & Myofascial Release for our Patients?
Massage Therapy and Myofascial Release further loosens involved muscles and it will speed your recovery time. It relaxes, releases, and increases the nutritional supply to the involved muscles and joints while helping reeducate those tissues to support you in a more balanced way.
Massage also benefits the nervous system. It sedates the involved nerves and the surrounding area. It increases circulation, blood flow, and thus brings nutrients to the area to speed healing and metabolism.
When your muscles get tight, they literally squeeze blood out of the area - this can result in your experiencing a "burning"-type pain. Myofascial Release and other techniques increase that blood flow and thus end the "burning".
Massage enhances lymphatic drainage. The lymphatic system is often likened to being the 'garbage system' of your body - it eliminates the waste materials created by inflammation and pain. Massage will increase lymphatic flow so you recover faster.
The additional advantage of this is overall relaxation and restfulness allowing you to experience more of a sense of well-being.
