Of all modalities, massage therapy provides numerous benefits for you. Here is a brief description of the benefits and the reasons why massage therapy is so effective.
Massage is a direct form of therapy which goes directly to where the issues reside. By dealing with the problems directly and naturally, without the use of medication, the muscles are not only relieved but are brought back to the time before the issue arose.
Years of repetitive activity can lock the body into a routine which limits your range of motion. By performing a variety of massage techniques, we stretch the muscles; they ‘wake up’ and begin to increase their range of motion.
The circulatory system is intertwined with the muscles. Thus, restoring the proper function of the muscles opens up the blood vessels and increases blood flow; a vital part of any well-functioning body.
Sometimes the body holds toxins in specific areas due to physical trauma and strain. By working these problem areas, we release the toxins back into the blood-stream where the body can eliminate them.
A well-functioning muscular and circulatory system free of physical tension indicates to the mind that things are going well.
When your body feels relaxed the brain receives signals that positive chemicals should be released, thus increasing the well-being of both body and mind.
Anxiety is a physiological issue but the body often house anxiety in its muscle structure. By clearing the pathways and realigning the muscles, your body tells your mind that the physical cues which indicate anxiety have been removed. This cuts the cycle of anxiety that manifests physically and feeds back into the anxiety.
Many therapies promote relaxation which has a lasting effect on the client. Removing the deeply imbedded stresses in your body allows for a more pleasant sleep as the tensions associated with daily life appear more manageable.
Many therapies attempt to tune into and manipulate the energy flow of the body. By opening blockage and promoting over all well-being, we enhance the body’s natural production of energy.
The muscles in your body retain fatigue for a variety of reasons. Massaging the muscles tells the body to reboot the proper function of those problematic areas. As many therapies involve a holistic approach to healing the body and its energies, they reduce fatigue because the whole body is activated to produce energy.
A relaxed body is essential for a relaxed mind. By removing stress from the fascia and improving circulation, we enable your body to focus on the task at hand instead of being distracted by its internal and unconscious issues.
