Deep-muscle massage stretches the connective tissue around tight muscles, ridding them of cramping and allowing greater freedom of movement. Massage can also improve motion in your joints, soften hardened muscle tissue, and stimulate your lymphatic system.
One especially appropriate method is the feldenkrais method, which consists of a large number of exercises performed either in group classes or solo with a practitioner, aims at improving autonomic motor responses. While lying down, you are guided through a series of light slow movements designed to support your neuromuscular system and alter habitual patterns of movement.
Classical massage helps to invigorate the patient. It also eases muscular and perhaps emotional tension. It is great for relaxation. Some people, however, may find it hared to tolerate close physical contact. Some may be sensitive to manual stimuli. Use only a qualified practitioner.
