Blood Flow and Massage
Massaging has been a long cherished practice among the masses. Two things have plagued the people: 1) Pain and 2) Injury. Over the years, the number of workplace injuries, as well as the number of visits to the doctor has continuously increased. This alone would indicate that the number of people who are passionate about massage is on the higher side compared to the other part of the world.
Massaging has been around for thousands of years. Beginning as a means to relaxation during the Ancient Egyptian rule, massaging has now become a major part of the human body care routine. Massage is defined as the manual manipulation of the external tissues and organs of the body by skilled hands. Although there are a lot of ways to massage, it usually involves putting pressure or applying pulling techniques on the part of the patient's body.
Massage can be applied to a muscle by flexing or extend the arm. Flexion is where you grasp a stretch of tissue or organ with your fingers while in a relaxed position. Increase tone can be achieved by applying more pressure.
The answer to the question, does massaging help to relax the muscles or is it just a pain reliever, may just depend on the person. For instance, relaxing the muscles after a work out is done, will help you recover almost immediately. But, massaging away the causes of pain in a person may not be enough to rid of the cause of the pain, which would result in an injury. That is why massaging is often considered as part of a rehabilitation program.
