Pressure of the massage is used to relieve knots, stimulate the blood and flush excess waste built up in the muscles during exercise. Many massage techniques including petrissage, rolling and myofascial release can be beneficial used as a rehabilitative technique during intense exercise programmes. Petrissage can include stretching, kneading and squeezing soft tissue and underlying muscles. Petrissage lifts up tissues to relieve tension and stretch and loosen muscle fibres. When muscles fibres are stretched, the fibres are able to move apart releasing tightness and improving flexibility. Rolling is a similar massage technique which aims to pull and roll skin in a continuous motion to separate tissues from muscles which may be stuck. Muscles being stuck to connective tissues can cause discomfort and pain. Myofascial release is used to stretch out large areas of muscle. Pressure is applied across the fascia network breaking down restrictions and relieving tension. All massage techniques contribute to the quickening of the body's recovery process for people to continue training without risk of injury.
