In brief: More information

This is pretty vague.
More information is needed to know how to answer. For example, a simple warm compress, bengay, tiger balm, etc causes local blood vessels to dilate. Give us more specifics and we can give you a better answer.

In brief: Physical therapy

Many physical therapists, pain centers, and doctors may use warm moist packs to loosen tight muscles before range of motion exercises and stretching.
Warm swimming pools good for circulation and no gravitational pressure on joints.
