1. Body Awareness
Massage therapy can bring about body awareness. You will feel areas of tension and relaxation during treatment, you will get to know your body and connect with it internally.
2. Calms Organs
Whether you have injuries or not, massage will improve the health of your muscles, fascia, joints, tendons and ligaments. Massage also calms the nervous system and improves your circulation, so it improves the health of your cardiovascular, digestive, nervous, skeletal, lymphatic (the immune system), urinary and endocrine systems.
Massage Therapy is a time for you to relax and let go of the stress and worry from daily life. Deep breathing and relaxation will help lower stress levels, a known cause for many heath issues.
Massage Therapy improves circulation. A person with poor circulation can have a number of problems, including pooling of the fluid in the extremities (like the toes), cold hands and feet, fatigue, and achiness created by an accumulation of lactic acid in the muscles.
Good circulation brings damaged, tense muscles the oxygen rich blood they need to heal. Good circulation helps fight diseases, stabilizes body temperature and helps maintain overall homeostasis in your body.
Last but not least, breathe. Deep breathing increases the amount of oxygen that is being delivered to your blood and therefore the amount of oxygen that reaches your internal organs.
Go ahead and enjoy your massage, the benefits are endless.
