confuses the body’s pain signals:
* Rubbing may interfere with pain signal’s pathways to your brain, a process called the “gate control
theory”, according to experts. Pain impulses run toward the spinal cord, go up the cord and enter the brain. These impulse
are perceived as pain. When you rub, it sends other impulses along the same nerves. When all these impulses try to reach the
brain through the nerves, the nerves get clogged like a highway during morning rush hour. The results? Most of them won’t
reach the brain. And if the pain signals do not reach the brain, you won’t feel pain. Thus massage works by “closing
the gate” that pain impulses have to pass thorough.

Rubbing stimulates the release of endorphins (morphine-like substances) that the body manufactures, into
the brain and nervous system.

oxygen because the tightness reduces blood circulation to the area. Massage improves blood circulation. The muscles then relax,
and pain decreases.
