What Happens During a Massage

What Happens During a Massage

Elements Massage Gilbert

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:

  • Relaxation
    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.
  • Relief
    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.
  • Circulation
    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.
  • Rest
    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.
