Massage:

  • Increases Circulation- The increased blood flow caused by massage helps increase the nourishment muscles receive and carries the wastes from the muscles into the lymphatic system. If your legs ache after a long day try massaging them and notice how much quicker the aching goes away. While it does not exercise muscles, regular massages can help prevent the atrophy of unused muscles.

  • Increases Flexibility- The kneading and pulling motion of massage can help increase flexibility in muscles and loosen bound fascia. The therapist can also use methods such as Muscle Energy Technique to increase flexibility.

  • Strengthens the Immune System- Encouraging the flow of lymph helps pump toxins out of your body enhancing your immune system.

  • Reduces Stress and Anxiety- Calming the nervous system is one of the effects of massage. This facilitates relaxation.

  • Improves the Health of Skin- It helps the skin become more supple and regulates oil production.

  • Speeds Healing- Massage helps speed healing time after surgery and reduces the appearance of scar tissue.

  • Reduces Blood Pressure- The calming of the nervous system helps slow the heart rate resulting in lower blood pressure.
