The musculature and connective tissues that hold all vertebrates together inevitably becomes thickened, shortened, stiff and distorted. This happens with age, trauma, overuse, disuse, or emotional and physical strain. Massage softens tissue by promoting the internal movement of bodily fluids to flow back into areas that need lubrication and circulation.
Bodywork helps our “mechanical” skeletal structure revert back to a natural range of motion by softening these surrounding tissues. Bones, muscles, tendons, everything within the “skin” of an organism are holistically connected. Not only is everything connected, but pundits are suggesting every cell has a “brain” that connects to every other cell within the organism. A web of sentience is threaded throughout the body.
