Every single nerve in your body runs through your spinal cord. Your nerves tell your body what to do. When your spine is out of alignment it creates stress on your nerves. This means that your brain and your body are not going to communicate properly, having a negative effect on the way your entire body functions.
Massage works by making your muscles more flexible and relaxed. When your body is under a lot of stress, it creates knots and trigger points which can make your movements from day-to-day very challenging and painful. Massage helps to break up these knots and trigger points.
