What is a massage?

A massage is the manipulation of the soft tissues of your body including the muscles, connective tissues, tendons, ligaments and skin. Hands, fingers, elbows and other devices are used to apply different types of pressure and movement to loosen your muscles and help you to relax. 

What are their benefits?

Reduces stress

A relaxing massage from the healing hands of a massage therapist can help reduce stress. The idea of a massage is to implement relaxation. A calming environment, with comforting aromatherapy, soft music and dim lighting allows you to disconnect from the stress of the outside world and unwind.

Reduces pain and muscle soreness

Muscle tissues are able to relax during a massage which helps reduce muscle contractions and spasms. During the massage, nerves that are being compressed are able to relax and do their job sending messages to the brain. This improves the overall function of muscles and organs.

Improves circulation 

The pressure and manipulation applied during a massage help with blood flow through congested areas of the body. This also helps new blood flow into the body. The squeezing and pulling motions that are done get rid of lactic acid that can cause soreness.  It improves the circulation of the lymph fluid that contains metabolic waste from the muscles and organs. When this is done, blood pressure lowers and body function is improved.

Lowers heart rate and blood pressure

After a massage, the heart has less pressure on it which means it is able to circulate blood around the body more easily. The decrease in pressure aids in the heart not having to work as hard to pump blood throughout the body. A rapid heartbeat is easy to maintain and the body is under less stress. Massages also help lower blood pressure. Blood is able to be regulated throughout the body which improves circulation.

Improves immune function

Due to the pressure applied, massages help promote increased circulation and lymphatic flow. This helps move healthy nutrients through the body and get rid of metabolic waste. The level of lymphocytes, the cells that help the immune system fight off illnesses, can also be increased.
