Lengthening Muscles Increases Their Strength

The Myofascial system is composed of muscle and connective tissue (fascia). Fascia is found everywhere in the body. The most common cause of pain is a disturbance in the myofascial system. Tight muscles develop painful areas called trigger points. These shortened muscles put pressure on nerves and veins, pull bones out of alignment, and pull on tendons, causing inflammation and  damage.

All these problems can develop in the back, neck, legs, hips, wrists (carpal tunnel), elbows, shoulders: get the picture?? All these painful conditions can be treated by restoring short, tight muscles to a healthy, supple, elastic condition. When muscles gets lengthened through deep tissue massage, pressures on joints and other structures disappear.
