How Massage Works

Through the application of pressure, movement, and touch, massage results in different physiological changes in the body. There are two main responses to be aware of:

  1. Relaxation Response
    This is an involuntary response generated by the nervous system where your body predictably relaxes during a massage session. In this state, your heart and breathing rate slows down, your blood pressure decreases, your body’s production of cortisol reduces, and your muscles simply relax. During this process, your ability to register physical effects of stress like anxiety, depression, digestive disorders, and fatigue are minimized.
  2. Mechanical Response
    The mechanical response is the definition for all of the physical effects that occur within the body in the soft tissues during a massage session. The physical manipulation of the body in this manner has many benefits including an increase in blood and lymph circulation, a relaxation and normalization of connective tissue, ligaments, and muscles, and an overall improvement in any symptoms that are associated with the body’s organs.

Depending on what type of benefits you are after, there are a few common styles of massage like Swedish massage, Sports massage, Hot Stone massage and more.
