The truth is that your emotional state can have a dramatic effect on your physical well-being. If you are depressed, angry or agitated in some way, you can actually increase the tension in your muscles, meaning that you are more likely to be injured during your workout. MASSAGE THERAPY can increase your mental and emotional health.
A massage can reduce muscle pain, but what isn’t considered is that by reducing the pain that a person is feeling in their muscles you are actually preventing injuries from occurring. In most cases, surrounding muscles to those that are sore will compensate by taking on a more active role in relation to providing stability in force for the sore muscles. This can actually cause them to be injured as well, but providing relief to pained and fatigued muscles will increase their ability to stand on their own.
