As part of a full body approach, massage therapy can be crucial to healing the body and aiding in many important body functions. Both the body and the mind can benefit from massage therapy.
Some of the many physiological effects of massage include:
- Increasing circulation, allowing more oxygen and nutrients into tissues and vital organs
- Stimulating the lymph system, the body’s natural defense against toxic invaders
- Relaxing and softening injured and overused muscles
- Healing of the muscles and tissues after injury
Psychologically, the act of massage can help you relax, enabling you to feel more comfortable, much calmer and rather detached from the stresses of everyday life. As your circulation increases and oxygen flows, the effect of relaxation becomes intensified, allowing your body to heal and strengthen.
Massage therapy is effective for a wide variety of treatment plans and it will also complement every wellness program.
