How to massage the upper back
Massage accelerates the recovery of tired and sore upper back. It relieves tension and stiffness, relaxing the muscle tissue by increasing blood circulation. Massage helps nourish the muscle tissue with oxygen and nutrient rich blood and remove accumulated toxins through the lymphatic system. Restoring circulation stimulates the healing process of the muscle and its corresponding connective tissue such as tendons and ligaments.
When massaging your upper back, apply pressure to trigger points. The massage warms up the traps and rhomboids, helping your muscles recover their elasticity and flexibility. Feel your upper back stretch and relax.
