Myofascial release works the broader network of muscles that might be causing your pain. It reduces tension throughout your body by releasing trigger points across your muscular system. Myofascial release focuses on reducing pain by easing the tension and tightness in the muscles as well as increasing the circulation of blood flow in the body.
Stretching keeps the muscles flexible, strong, and healthy, and we need that flexibility to maintain range of motion in the joints. Without it, the muscles shorten and become tight. A flexible muscle is less likely to become injured if you have to make a sudden movement. Injured or tight muscles may not be strong enough to support the joints in movement, which can lead to injury.
Acupressure is a specific type of massage that relies primarily on using the thumbs, fingers and palms to apply pressure to various points on the body. The points used in acupressure massage exist among a network or meridians, which are basically the highways on which energy flows throughout the body. Sometimes pressure is needed at these points to clear up blockages and help ensure a healthy, balanced and harmonious flow of energy through the body. Along with its ability to help treat variety of ailments, patients experience additional benefits of acupressure massage.
