Massage acts directly on your muscles with kneading and stretching motions. Massage can relieve many types of muscle tightness and pain by directly affecting the muscles themselves and by stimulating the nervous system to instruct the muscles to relax even more. Massage flushes waste products from muscles after vigorous exercise, reduces inflammation by increasing circulation and relieves pressure muscles can exert on nerves to the hands, arms, legs and feet. Massage also can reduce restrictions in fascia, which is the connective tissue that runs throughout the body, allowing for freer movement.
