Massage therapy can be helpful and enhance health for so many systems of the body. The lymphatic system carries mobile waste from the tissues so when doing massage it can help to stimulate the movement of the lymph so the massage ends up being detoxifying.
Another system of the body massage helps with is the respiratory system. Being massaged is very relaxing and when the body is relaxed that results in slower, deeper more synchronized breathing that oxygenates the tissues more thoroughly. When the cells are oxygenated more fully that contributes to vitality, rejuvenation and optimum wellness.
The next system of the body which massage benefits is the skeletal system. When the muscles are tight and out of balance the tissues start to constrict movement patterns. This in turn induces the skeletal system including the spine to have unfunctional movement routines. These unhealthy movement patterns can lead to injury and chronic pain. By massaging tightness and constriction this out may then lead to less constriction and structural alignment. If there’s constriction and tightness that could impede the normal flow of hormones. Being stressed out can also impact fertility and shut up the flow of blood and lymphatic tissue which can result in infertility. When you visit a massage therapist they help with circulation and assisting hormones and tissues soften which alleviates tightness and constriction which can aid in reproductive health.
The endocrine system can be aided by regular massage. This helps to aid in the thyroid functional at an optimal level. When the thyroid isn’t working properly that can lead to weight gain, fatigue and feeling lethargic all the time. Often people turn to medication to control their endocrine system but getting regular massage can regulate thyroid levels so that they can distribute the proper quantity of hormones.
The nervous system is greatly affected by this sort of deep muscle therapy. When the central nervous system is on a high state of alert which may lead to abnormal levels of cortsisol and other stress hormones which can result in nausea, sleeplessness, heart conditions and other psychological and physical conditions.
