Massage is the manipulation of soft tissue effecting a change in the surrounding tissue and structures.
If one or more of your muscles becomes too tight, your posture will be altered and your body will deliberately put other muscles out of there normal state of tone to compensate.
If this is not corrected, over a period of time, your body will assume the new posture, and you will have a permanent imbalance. You will become accustomed to this over time and quite probably will not notice that you have a dysfunction until you try to do something which requires a normal full range of movement.
