Massage Therapy Helps Treat Your Muscle Pain
When your muscles spasm, they hurt. This type of pain is usually caused when muscles don’t have proper blood flow. That sets up a painful domino effect: The lack of blood flow means muscles aren’t receiving enough oxygen. Lack of oxygen causes muscles to produce lactic acid. Lactic acid causes muscles to feel sore after physical activity.
The solution? Many clients report that when their muscles are relaxed through massage therapy, they feel better. That’s because lactic acid is released and muscle tissue receives enough blood and oxygen again.
While neuromuscular therapy can feel painful at first, clients often refer to it as “good pain” because the very pressure of massage is what alleviates muscle spasms. Be sure to give the massage therapist feedback concerning the amount of pressure you’re comfortable with. Is it too much, too little, getting better, getting worse? Our trained therapists listen and respond to you.
