Why You Should Get A Massage
I am sure you know the pain of fatigue, stress, and muscle cramps; guess what? There is a way you can melt all these by just pressing the right places.
What is a massage?
The body’s soft tissues are carefully and methodically moved during massage therapy to promote relaxation and reduce symptoms like pain, tension, anxiety, and fatigue.
Types of massage
1. Swedish massage is a softer type of massage that promotes relaxation.
2. Deep massage uses slower, somewhat firmer strokes to reach deeper muscle layers and tissue.
3. Trigger point massage focuses on areas with tightness and tension and works to ease that pressure.
The benefits of massage therapy include the following:
1. Lymphatic Detox
Your immune system’s health and fluid balance depend on the lymphatic system. Large clusters of lymph nodes are in the neck, armpits, and groin, and lymphatic veins and blood vessels run parallel throughout the body.
Your massage therapist drains the lymphatic system, where the lymph nodes remove pathogens, waste materials, and dead cells while focusing on flushing blood through muscle and tissue. Fluid retention results from sluggish lymphatic flow, and clearing the lymphatic system may lessen edema in some regions.
2. Relaxation of the Nervous System
When you unwind, your nervous system switches into “rest and digest” mode. If you have any painful or tense spots on your body, massage may reduce the strain your tight muscles are putting on your nerves.
A simple nervous system means that hormone production will balance out. Sleep/wake cycles, menstrual cycles, and even how much you eat respond favorably to relaxing.
3. Healthy Heart
A full-body massage will benefit your heart. Your venous return rises because of the vasodilation brought on by massage, increasing blood flow and oxygen delivery to all of your organs. Your entire cardiovascular system unwinds, and your body’s circulation gets better. Blood pressure and heart rate can be controlled by turning on the “rest and digest” phase of the parasympathetic nervous system.
4. Skin reviving
New skin cells can emerge from the mild exfoliation caused by your massage therapist’s hands and the massage oil and lotion.
5. Muscle-skeletal Advantages
Your muscles behave like sponges, drawing blood and lymph fluid out when they contract and bringing fresh blood, oxygen, and immune cells when they relax. To mobilize the joints and provide therapeutic tension to your muscles, ligaments, and tendons, your massage therapist may also integrate stretching and range-of-motion motions into the massage.
6. Improved breathing.
Your first breath on the massage table can become a sigh of relief because unrestricted breathing is one of the quickest ways to reduce tension. It is hardly surprising that when we’re anxious, our breathing becomes limited because so much pressure builds up in the shoulder, chest, and neck muscles. Your massage therapist can also massage the intercostal muscles, which are crucial for easy breathing.
