Massage loosens muscles and gets rid of trigger points (article on this topic coming soon) by bringing circulation and nutrients back to the area and realigning the muscle tissue. What does that mean for you? Your performance will increase with less of those nasty overly tight muscles, crazy chronic pains and less lay up time between events.
Now your muscles are working better, let's focus on your brain.
50% of massage is playing with your brain. Not in a shrink way, but in a phyiological response kind of way. It's understanding the balance between relaxing the body and sending it into flight mode. By using special techniques and certain squences massage can convince your brain to let go of chronic muscular holding patterns.
