Reducing the effects of stress
When you receive a massage your body’s parasympathetic nervous system is activated and this counteracts your body’s negative response to stress, relaxing the muscle tension and allowing your heart rate, blood pressure and circulation to return to normal.
Relaxing tense muscles
Muscles can become tight and ineffective for many reasons: stress, injury, poor circulation, overuse and misuse, can all cause you pain and discomfort as well as restrict your normal range of motion. When left unattended, these conditions become habitual and hamper the quality of your everyday life.
Massage therapy stretches and loosens tight muscles and connective tissue, breaks down and prevents formation of adhesions, frees your range of motion and reduces the dangers of fibrosis.
Decreasing chronic pain
A tight muscle cannot hold much fluid nor can it allow much fluid to pass through it. This decreases your circulation of blood and increases the strain placed on your heart.
Massage therapy releases contracted muscles and pushes venous blood towards the heart thus easing the strain on this vital organ. This increase in circulation brings energy producing nutrients and oxygen to your cells as well as carries away metabolic waste products that can make you feel listless and drained.
Help with sleep problems
Tension from everyday stress can disrupt your sleep leaving you tired, irritable and emotionally drained. This can rob you of the patience and stamina needed to face day to day life.
Massage therapy relaxes tense muscles and calms the nervous system, causing your body’s rhythm to slow down. When this happens your blood pressure lowers, your heart rate settles and your breath becomes deeper and more rhythmic, priming you for a perfect night’s sleep.
