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.
