Massage therapy can be helpful and improve health for so many systems of the body. The lymphatic system carries mobile waste away from the cells so when doing massage it helps 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 quite relaxing and when the body is relaxed that results in slower, deeper more synchronized breathing that oxygenates the cells thoroughly. When the cells are oxygenated more fully that leads to vitality, rejuvenation and optimum wellness.
The next system of the body that massage benefits is the skeletal system. When the muscles are tight and out of equilibrium the tissues start to constrict movement routines. This in turn causes the skeletal system including the backbone to have unfunctional movement routines. These unhealthy movement patterns may lead to injury and chronic pain. By massaging tightness and constriction this out may then lead to less constriction and structural alignment.
Another system that massaging can help with is the reproductive system. If there’s constriction and tightness that can impede the normal flow of hormones. Being stressed out may 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 assist with circulation and helping hormones and tissues soften which alleviates tightness and constriction which can aid in reproductive health.
The endocrine system is also 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, exhaustion and feeling lethargic all the time. Often people turn to drugs to regulate their endocrine system but getting regular massage may modulate thyroid levels in order that they can disperse the proper amount of hormones. When the central nervous system is on a high state of alert which may lead to abnormal levels of cortsisol and other stress hormones that can result in insomnia, ulcers, heart conditions and other emotional and physical ailments.
