o Heart Rate
o Blood Flow
By addressing the above symptoms, massage therapy can allow your body to focus on recovery.
In addition, massage therapy is a great tool to treat scar tissue post surgery or injury. Scar tissue is a build up of fibrous connective tissue that can cause serious issues down the line including, but not limited to, limited range of motion and flexibility, postural misalignment, pain, and nerve impingement. After waiting the recommended six weeks, your RMT can perform myofascial techniques to the scar to help decrease adhesions in order to prevent complications and help you recover.
So whether you are recovering from surgery or an injury, consider the benefits of massage therapy to help you return to your optimal wellness quickly!
Have a great day,
