Moving moisture through muscle and connective tissue is the point of our grasping, squeezing, poking, prodding, pressing, rubbing, and such; the self massage therapy we do when we have a strain or sprain, a cramp, foot pain, hand pain and stiffness, jaw pain, neck and shoulders, cramps, and so on. Our bodies demonstrate for us that simple physical manipulation achieves a introductory state of relaxation, increasing blood flow to bring in fresh oxygenated blood as a response to contact/touch, and reduction in pain. Continued pressure from the touch and continued manipulation increases the local circulation alleviating pain and discomfort. Fresh blood in, capillary action refreshed, followed by further relaxation, cell waste out, clean, repeat.
