Benefits of Massage

There is no doubt that massage holds numerous direct physical benefits, the most obvious being relaxation. Massage reduces stress by activating the para-sympathetic nervous system, which slows down the heart rate and prepares the body for a state of relaxation.massage 5

Massage increases blood circulation to muscles and connective tissue, which improves oxygen and nutrient supply. It also aids in the removal of metabolic by-products. This can reduce muscle tension and fatigue,  and improve recovery time. Massage increases lymph circulation, which can boost your immune system. Massage also helps to open tissue membranes, allowing nutrient flow into the muscles.
