I had a client come to my massage therapy practice in York complaining of “slack” muscle tone. I explained to him that you get many different types of muscle tone to the flaccid to the the tight. Both can cause problems. Flaccid muscle tone can result in more injuries, and very tight muscles can be very uncomfortable. However, massage can help with both. It can help to relax tight muscles, and it can increase blood flow to flaccid muscles, making them more robust.
