Why Do Muscles Feel Tight?

massage therapyWhat Causes Muscle Tightness? 

If your body is feeling stiff in the morning, then you might sleep in a poor position. Muscle stiffness can occur when your blood isn’t circulating properly, leading to excessive lactic acid. Alternatively, working in cold conditions can make you have muscle tightness because your blood flows to your internal organs. In addition, if you have peripheral artery disease or arthritis, then you can also have problems with stiff muscles. 

Visit a Day Spa For a Massage 

It is important to visit a physician to understand why the muscles of your legs, back or arms become stiff, and a diagnosis is possible with an examination.

Massage improves circulation throughout your body, helping to relieve chronic muscle tightness.  (more…)
