Myofascial Effects

Elevated blood sugar causes connective tissues to thicken, which effects the

entire myofascial system (myo – muscles and fascia – connective tissues).

From stiffness in muscles, tendons, and ligaments to a decreased range of

motion in joints, this can cause problems with mobility and flexibility across

the body. Massage can help reduce the effects of elevated blood sugar

levels on the body by loosening up tense areas, relieving aches and pains, and regaining range of motion.
