You may be an expert massage receiver or a novice, there are still probably interesting facts about what occurs in your body during a massage session that you are unaware of. At our studio, we are all about delivering a therapeutic and personalized experience that addresses your evolving needs.
As a holistic and nonpharmacological solution to many of life’s modern woes, here’s what happens inside your body when you experience a massage:
The gentle application of touch, pressure, and manipulation of the body’s muscle tissue, ligaments, and skin can induce a deep sense of peace and relaxation. When a massage therapist employs their techniques, your body’s parasympathetic nervous system relaxes and your body can increase the production of endorphins and serotonin.
Movements affiliated with deep massage can decrease the activity of proteins in your body which can, in turn, decrease the body’s inflammatory response. It can also lend a boost to speeding muscle recovery and restoring the body’s natural energy supplies.
Massage therapy can increase your body’s circulation which means more blood and nutrients to where you need it most. This addresses your body’s needs on a cellular level helping to oxygenate blood and organs while simultaneously removing toxins from the bloodstream.
One of the pillars of good health is quality sleep. A lack of a healthy amount of sleep is linked to a number of chronic conditions. With massage, your body’s natural defense mechanisms are circumnavigated, allowing you to achieve better rest.
