Massage Therapy for Health
It may just look like a lot of pressing and kneading on the skin, but massage is actually a scientific process. The reason you feel different after a massage is because of its healing and invigorating effect it has on tired, aching or injured muscles. Massages increase blood and lymph circulation. Llymph is a fluid that rids your body tissues of waste and is dependent on the squeezing effect of muscles. An active person has better lymph flow than an inactive one, however stimulation from vigorous activity can lead to increased waste that can negate the benefit. This is where massaging comes in. Massages can dramatically aid lymph movement, which supply nutrients and oxygen and rids your body of wastes and toxins together with blood. It is easy to understand why good circulation is so important to our health and why massage can be so beneficial for this purpose.
A wide range of other benefits:
- Increases the blood’s oxygen capacity by 10-15%
- Helps loosen contracted, shortened muscles and stimulates weak, flaccid muscles. This muscle ‘balancing’ can help posture and promote more efficient movement.
- Speedy recovery from exercise-induced fatigue.
- Increased production of gastric juices, saliva and urine.
- Increased excretion of nitrogen, inorganic phosphorous and sodium chloride (salt). This suggests that the metabolic rate increases
- Balancing the nervous system by soothing or stimulating it, depending on which effect is needed.
- Improvement of the function of oil and sweat glands that lubricate, clean and cool the skin. Tough, inflexible skin can become softer and suppler.
- Stimulating nerves, indirectly or directly, that supply internal organs can dilate the organs’ blood vessels, improving blood supply.
