The physical benefits of massage
- Reduces muscle spasm
Massage helps to relax the muscles and increases mobility.
- Improves the flexibility of muscle
Studies have shown that massage aimed at muscle relaxation can increase the range of motion in a joint.
- Improve formation of scar tissue
Deeper techniques may be used to separate muscle fibres which have adhered together as a result of some form of strain or injury.
- Reduced swelling
An increase in temperature and movement within the soft tissue increases lymphatic flow – this helps reduce swelling.
The Physiological effects of massage
- Increases blood and lymph flow
Soft tissue massage increases localised blood circulation and lymphatic flow by gently compressing and releasing deep blood vessels.
- Removes waste products
As lymphatic flow increases, waste products from areas of damaged soft tissue are reabsorbed more quickly via the lymphatic system.

Neurological effects of soft tissue massage
- Relieves pain
The application of pressure to a painful area overloads the pain receptors to your brain with other signals, therefore reducing the transmission of just the pain signals.
- Increases blood circulation
Massage causes the blood vessels to enlarge, contributing to an increase in blood circulation, temperature, muscle elasticity, and delivery of fresh nutrients and oxygen to the muscles.
Psychological effects of soft tissue massage
- Relieves tension and anxiety
Massage is a pleasant experience and often leads to a more relaxed mental state of mind.
- Pain relief
Massage can also reduce the perception of pain you may be experiencing.
