A full-body massage accompanied with soothing music, soft lighting, and a peaceful environment is pure bliss. But, even if you’re perfectly calm, your body goes into full activation mode during a massage, something most people are unaware of. Massage activates your nervous system, awakens your muscles, organs, and glands, circulates blood and lymph fluid, and causes a variety of cells to produce and release chemicals and hormones. A massage will aid in the rejuvenation of your body and the relief of stress-related symptoms.
The mild exfoliation caused by your massage therapist’s hands, combined with the massage lotion and oil, allows new skin cells to develop.
Relaxation of the Nervous System
If you feel discomfort or stress in some places of your body, it’s conceivable that it’s due to pressure on nerves created by tight muscles, which massage can help reduce. Hormones that regulate sleep/wake cycles, menstrual cycles, immunological cells, blood sugar, and even how much food you consume are all affected by the relaxation that comes with a full-body massage.
Blood and lymph fluid are squeezed out when you tense your muscles, and fresh blood enters when you relax them, carrying new nutrients, oxygen, and immune cells. Stretching and range-of-motion exercises may be included in the massage, which mobilizes the joints and applies beneficial tension to your muscles, ligaments, and tendons.
Detoxification of the Lymphatic System
Your massage therapist is emptying the lymphatic system, which filters out dead cells, waste materials, and possible pathogens, as well as flushing blood through muscle and tissue. Fluid retention is caused by sluggish lymph flow, and emptying the lymphatic system can help to alleviate edema in particular areas of the body.
Increased Blood Supply to Bones
Massage helps your skeletal system because blood flow transports calcium and other minerals to your bones, promoting their strength and function.
A Heart That Is Healthy
A full-body massage is also beneficial to your heart. Massage causes vasodilation, which enhances venous return and, as a result, blood flow and oxygen delivery to all of your organs. Your entire cardiovascular system relaxes, and your overall circulation improves.
An optional abdominal massage that acts directly on your big intestine to manage the latter stages of digestion is included in a classic Swedish massage. Food travels easily through the digestive system, allowing your stomach, gallbladder, pancreas, and intestines to work together for optimal nutritional absorption and overall health.
It’s no surprise that when we’re anxious, our breathing becomes limited since so much tension builds up in our shoulder, chest, and neck muscles. Your massage therapist can work into tense muscles to relieve tightness in muscles that help respiration as you relax further into the treatment and your breathing deepens and evens out.
