Massage is more than a luxury treatment. It’s a therapeutic experience that draws on the ancient healing practices and powers of ancient history. At Elements Massage Scottsdale East, we deliver a wide range of experiences depending on your needs. From couples massage to prenatal, hot stone to integrative reflexology to more, we offer services for people of all ages and walks of life. One key aspect that massage can address is the body’s connective tissue.
What is Connective Tissue?
Connective tissue is the layer between your muscles and skin. It’s the tissue that supports your organs, muscle function, and joints and is responsible for delivering oxygen to needed areas of the body while helping to process toxins and waste.
When you are in a session at our studio, long and slow strokes united with pressure applied to the arms, upper and lower back, lower limbs and feet is utilized to warm up the body’s underlying muscles where adhesions in the cell walls can interfere with the ability for the body to absorb nutrients.
By breaking down these cell walls, massage can invigorate the mind and body. Plus massage can help boost the production of collagen and elastin in the skin, leading to a healthy glow.
Other benefits of massage for connective tissue include:
- Increased circulation
- Release of endorphins to help fight pain
- Better range of motion
- Reduced muscle spasms
- Increased joint flexibility
- Quicker recovery from rigorous activities
- Pain relief
