Age, injury, illness, obesity, & a sedentary lifestyle are factors that lead to poor circulation. Roadblocks known as myofascial adhesions are created over time that inhibit proper blood flow. The areas most affected are extremities of the body.
A full body massage can work immediate wonders for improved blood circulation & eventually alleviate the circulation issues completely. Techniques such as effluerage, pettrisage, tapotement, vibrations, acupressure, & stretching can make rapid improvements in blood circulation to the extremities. By massaging throughout the body, blood flow is encouraged…Reflexology in the hands & feet can alleviate euric & lactic acid buildup relieving chronic pain in the extremities.
