There are a range of physiological effects that occur during a massage to improve posture. The physiological effects that most commonly occur include:
The most common physiological effects that occur during a massage to help improve posture include increased vasodilation, increased temperature and increased tissue elasticity.
Increased vasodilation occurs during a massage to improve posture. Vasodilation is the relaxation of smooth muscles lining a vessel resulting in the widening of the vessels. The neurotransmitter histamine increases the permeability of blood vessels resulting in vasodilation. Increasing vasodilation encourages an improvement in blood flow due to a decrease in blood pressure. The widening of vessels and decrease in blood pressure allows an increase in blood to be circulated through the vessels. An increase in blood flow is used to rise muscle temperature, stimulating the relaxation of tighten and tense muscles. The relaxation of tight and tense muscles increases range of movement and improves posture due to a decrease in restriction.
Posture is improved when temperature increases. An increase in temperature occurs within both superficial and deep tissues around the body. The temperature of fascia can also increase. Fascia is a layer of fibrous connective tissues located beneath the skins surface. Temperature increases due to an increase in circulation. An increase in circulation occurs due to friction created between the skin and fingers. An increase in temperature decreases tissue inelasticity and also improves their flexibility. An increase in temperature can also improve mobility around a joint. Improving tissue elasticity and joint mobility both allow posture to improve and return to normal.
Increased tissue elasticity often occurs to help improve posture. The ability of a muscle to stretch to reach its full range of movement describes tissue elasticity. The most common types of tissues massage work on both soft tissues and connective tissues. When tissues become restrictive, they can reduce movement and lead to poor posture. Tissue elasticity increases due to a rise in temperature. When tissue elasticity increases the flexibility of the tissues also increase, improving movement and decreases restriction. Increasing movement allows posture to be returned to normal without any pain.
Improved posture is the process of returning posture to normal after it has been affected due to a variety of reasons including exercise. A variety of massages can be used to improve posture including deep tissue massage, sports massage and Swedish massage. Techniques such as deep strokes, mobilizations and myofascial release are all used within a massage to help improve posture. There are many ways improved posture through massage can help a person including acute pain, relaxation and tight muscles. In order for posture to be improved a variety of physiological effects occur during a massage including increased vasodilation, increased temperature and increased tissue elasticity.
