While exercising and stretching does help delay the loss of flexibility,
there are several different massage techniques that can help ease the conditions
of joint flexibility and return the joint to its' normal functioning.

Tense muscles pull on and tighten tendons and ligaments, cause rigidity,
cut off circulation for proper metabolism, drain us of energy, and pull our body out of alignment.
Unattended, this can eventually lead to a host of problems. Often this state of affairs goes
unnoticed for a long time, until it is too late. We may move wrong and due to our imbalances and
tightness hurt ourselves in ways that could have easily been prevented with a few massages.
This neglect may cause us much grief, pain, and expensive visits to the doctor. Many chronic
conditions might also be avoided with regular bodywork. One of the greatest benefits of
massage you will never know about.
