Massage therapy can be helpful and enhance health for so many systems of the body. The lymphatic system carries cellular waste from the cells so when doing massage it can help to stimulate the movement of the lymph so the massage ends up being detoxifying.
The other system of the body massage helps with is the respiratory system. Being massaged is very relaxing and when the body is relaxed which results in slower, deeper more synchronized breathing that oxygenates the tissues more thoroughly. When the tissues are oxygenated more completely that contributes to vitality, rejuvenation and optimum health.
The next system of the body that massage benefits is the skeletal system. When the muscles are tight and out of balance the tissues start to constrict movement routines. This then induces the skeletal system including the backbone to have unfunctional movement patterns. These unhealthy movement patterns may lead to injury and chronic pain. By massaging tightness and constriction this out may then result in 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 close up the flow of blood and lymphatic tissue that may result in infertility. When you visit a massage therapist they assist with circulation and assisting hormones and cells soften which eases tightness and constriction which can aid in reproductive health.
The endocrine system can be aided by regular massage. This helps to assist in the thyroid functional at an optimal level. When the thyroid isn’t working properly that can result in weight gain, exhaustion and feeling lethargic all the time. Often people turn to medication to regulate their endocrine system but getting regular massage can modulate thyroid levels in order that they can disperse the correct amount 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 that can result in abnormal levels of cortsisol and other stress hormones that may lead to nausea, sleeplessness, heart conditions and other emotional and physical conditions.
