Benefits of Massage
“Prevention is better than cure”
“Massage Therapy” is an excellent preventive treatment essential for the maintenance of health and fitness. Nowadays, people of all ages are increasingly considering natural therapies as a way to encourage an improved sense of well-being and as a means to a long, happy and harmonious life free of illness. People have been enjoying the benefits of massage for thousands of years. Records indicate that it was used in several ancient societies for a variety of health reasons. Today, massage still provides benefits to all the systems of the body, some of which are outlined below.
Benefits to the Nervous System:
The nervous system is profoundly influenced by the application of massage. The effects of massage may be soothing and sedative, providing relief from nervous irritability. Disorders such as insomnia, tension, headaches and other stress-related conditions respond to the healing power of touch as peace and harmony returns to the troubled mind. The effects of massage on the nerves may be stimulating, promoting an increase in the activity of the muscles, vessels and glands.
Benefits to the Muscular System:
Muscles maintain a balance in relaxing and contracting. Some massage movements relax and stretch the muscles and soft tissues of the body, reducing muscular tension and cramps. Fibrous tissues, adhesions and old scar tissue can be broken down and cleansed of waste deposits. Muscle fatigue and stiffness caused by over activity, and the resulting build-up of toxic substances in the muscles, is reduced by muscular contraction and relaxation.
Benefits to the Skeletal System:
