Massage Therapy – Why it’s Good For Your Health
Massage therapy is a method of healing that utilizes human touch to promote relaxation, relief of tension, and a greater level of well being. There are numerous methods and techniques of massage, ranging from the most gentle, superficial stimulation to deep, forceful manipulation of muscle groups. During massage therapy, your parasympathetic nervous system is activated. The parasympathetic nervous system is the counterpart to your sympathetic nervous system, your fight or flight response. When your parasympathetic nervous system is active, your body goes into a relaxed state, your heart rate, respiration and blood flow to the muscles slows down. This gives the body a chance to de-stress on the physical level. When the body stays in a state of constant stress, eventually the body will break down. You may not realize it, but even just daily work stress can activate the body’s sympathetic nervous system. Stress related diseases are common and massage therapy combined with a good diet and exercise will definitely decrease your chances of developing stress related diseases.
One of the many health benefits you receive through massage is the elimination of toxins. This occurs through the movement of blood and lymph during the massage. Although the blood flow of the muscles slows during a massage, while the therapist is working on a specific muscle, blood flow is increased in the area of contact, and ultimately circulation does increase in the body after a massage. When blood circulation increases, it increases the oxygen to the cells and thus increases elimination of toxins. If you already get massages, you may have noticed that your nose gets stuffy during your session. You may have thought it was because your face was down in the face cradle but it’s more than that – it is the toxins building up and looking for a way to get out of the body. This is why it is very important to drink lots of water after a massage – to flush out the built up toxins.
Massage is an effective way to increase the body’s receptivity to Chiropractic alignment. Used before an adjustment to break-up scar tissue, warm and soften tight muscles, and afterward, to encourage the body to accept and retain the treatment. It not only promotes healthy circulation but it also promotes ease of movement, deep breathing, strong immunity, mental clarity, lowers stress and anxiety levels, reduces blood pressure, and shortens the healing time of injuries.
