There are so many benefits of massage that it’s hard to narrow down the list to talk about just one. However, we’ve sifted through the benefits and there’s one we feel that deserves extra special attention and that’s circulation. Your body’s circulatory system is responsible for moving blood and lymph (the fluid that removes toxins from your tissues.)
Massage, with its applications of varying pressures and movements including kneading, rolling, tapping, and more stimulate you circulatory functions and thus greatly improve your body’s blood and lymph flow. This is an integral step to wellness.
Other contributions from boosted circulatory function include:
- Less lactic acid build-up in your muscles
- Increased elasticity in connective tissues
- Better metabolic processes (secretions/excretions)
- Calmer central nervous system
- Stimulates nerve endings and increases oxygen to vital organs
Why Massage Works
Massage speeds the recovery from everything like an injury to overuse. Through movements, areas of concentrated tension and knots are released. Massage stimulates soft tissue repair and can disperse bodily bi-products like lactic and carbonic acids.
As a foundation for wellness, massage can also do other great things like promoting better energy, harness your ability to focus, minimize irritability and more. This ancient art has been practiced throughout the ages to address a variety of aches and pains.
