How to massage the hamstrings
Massage accelerates the recovery of tired and sore hamstrings. 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 hamstrings, apply pressure to trigger points. The massage warms up the femoris, semitendinosus and semimembranosus, helping your muscles recover their elasticity and flexibility. Feel your hamstrings stretch and relax.
