Got tight muscles? Here are 5 easy ways to help you find relief. From stretching to massage, these tight muscle treatments will hopefully get you feeling better soon. 

A great way to relieve tight muscles is to warm up first. You can do some gentle exercises with a band to get the muscles warm and loosened up before you stretch out the muscles.

You can also use a rolling stick or a roller on your muscles to help get them relax, and help the muscles recover from a workout. The folks at Skyin sent their Recovery Kit to use, which has all the equipment you need.

Acupressure also helps recovery by increasing circulation to tight areas, and relaxing the muscles as well.

Finally whole body stretches work really well to get all the tightness out of your body. The prayer stretch or child’s pose is a great way to do this.
