Boosting Circulation with Massage
Elements Massage Moon Valley May 31, 2017
There are many demonstrable benefits to regularly incorporating massage as part of your health and wellness routine. For example, massage can help induce a deep sense of relaxation, it can alleviate aches and pains, heighten your ability to focus and have more energy, or even increase your quality of sleep. But did you know that massage can also do wonders to boost your body’s blood flow?
More on Circulation
Your body has two different systems that work together to remove toxins and waste: the cardiovascular system and the lymphatic system. Blood is pumped from your heart throughout your body depositing much-needed nutrients to muscles and tissues. In exchange, your blood then absorbs waste, otherwise called lymph and transports it to your lymph nodes for processing. This unique trade-off is how your body eliminates toxins from the blood while constantly replenishing your body with nutrients.
Your circulatory system functioning is responsible for keeping health issues like diabetes, kidney disease, muscle stiffness, or even the flu at bay.
The application of pressure and movements associated with massage can help increase your body’s blood flow thus improving circulatory function. Here’s how:
- Increasing Oxygenation
This means that after receiving a massage, your blood’s ability to carry more oxygen expands. This allows your body to move and process toxins more effectively and quickly!
- Soothes Nervous System
Massage can encourage the production of feel-good endorphins like serotonin and dopamine to unlock a positive and balanced mind.
- Encourages Bodily Repairs
It is easy to injure yourself, especially when your soft tissues are overstressed. To accelerate bodily repairs, a boost in the oxygenation of your blood brings more nutrients quicker to aid in a faster healing process.
