How Massage Can Help
Relaxing Tissue
Massage Therapy relaxes muscle tissue, which reduces painful contractions and  spasms. Massage also reduces nerve compression. To understand this, consider  that when muscles are contracted, they sometimes compress the nerves around  them. When these muscles are relaxed, the nerves are no longer compressed and can get proper nutrients and operate more efficiently. The nerves can  assume their normal work of transmitting messages to and from the brain, which  improves functioning of the muscles and organs.
Touching the skin or applying pressure relaxes muscles, tendons, and  ligaments. In addition, while some of the deeper tissues of the body, such as  deep spinal musculature, cannot be easily accessed by a massage therapist, the  release of more superficial layers of muscles also affects these deeper  layers. This leads to both superficial and deep tissues finding a better  alignment and balance.

 
Improving Circulation
Massage is believed to improve blood and lymph  circulation. This is probably due partly to the physical manipulation of soft  tissue and partly to the chemicals released as part of the relaxation  response.
Improved circulation can enhance  the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to muscle cells. As cellular health  improves, tissues function more efficiently. More efficient functioning leads to  the removal of waste products and may increase the absorption of excess fluids  and reduce swelling in soft tissues.
