Positive Effects of Massage on Muscles



The body’s muscles benefit from massage therapy by relieving muscular tension, relaxing muscles and reducing muscle soreness and fatigue. Massage Therapy relieves muscular restriction, tightness, stiffness and spasms. It reduces muscle soreness and fatigue by enhancing blood circulation that results in an increase in the amount of oxygen and nutrients available to the muscles which aids their recovery.


Compressive strokes and cross-fibre friction strokes help separate muscle fibres resulting in a reduction of muscle spasms. When muscular tension is reduced, your range of motion is improved. Massage therapy increases flexibility by lengthening tight muscles and promoting relaxation.
