Massage

Massage

Massage is a popular and effective form of therapy for chronic conditions such as back pain, anxiety, depression, and headaches.

The human body responds to massage in two ways:

  1. A mechanical response, which occurs as soft tissue is pulled, lifted, rubbed, and compressed. The body responds with increased blood circulation, reduced swelling, and reduced formation of scar tissue.
  2. Reflexive response, which occurs as the nerves are stimulated. The body responds with general relaxation and reduced blood pressure.

Here are just a few of the benefits of massage therapy:

  • Cardiovascular system – improves blood circulation, lowers blood pressure, promotes rapid removal of toxins and replenishes nutrients
  • Immune system – promotes lymph circulation, reduces swelling, strengthens immune function
  • Skin – improves skin condition, texture, tone, and appearance
  • Nervous system – reduces stress and anxiety, reduced depression, reduced pain
  • Muscles – relieves muscular tension, reduces soreness and fatigue, reduces trigger point formation, increases range of motion, improves balance and posture, improves motor skills, increases flexibility, tones weak muscles, improves muscular nutrition
  • Respiratory – reduces respiration rate, strengthens respiratory muscles, decreases asthma attacks
  • Digestive System – relieves constipation, stimulates digestion
