Massage therapy and soft tissue bodywork are essential in the overall wellness and functioning of the nervous system and body. Our muscles and connective tissue are bombarded by physical, biochemical, and psychological stressors. We all engage in numerous repetitive motions daily. The subsequent daily neurochemical bath that results can create muscle stiffness, adhesions, trigger points, instability, decreased nervous system adaptability, and ongoing symptoms. These stressors can make connective tissues thicker and stickier, pain increase through inflammatory feedback processes, and symptoms intensify. Massage therapy and soft tissue bodywork is a great way to address these tissues and to assist the nervous system in processing and effectively metabolizing nervous system chemistry and releasing pain and tension.
