Why is massage therapy beneficial?
The mechanical response
The physical changes that occur in the body . This includes improving the circulation in your body as well as relaxing the tissue. Massages help the lymph and blood circulation in the body to improve. As the chemicals are released due to the relaxation response, along with the manipulation of the soft tissue, the circulation within the body gets better. This is beneficial because the circulation helps transport nutrients and oxygen throughout the body through the muscle cells.
Getting a massage could also help the tissues become more relaxed. When the tissues are relaxed , they help reduce the amount of spasms and pain contractions in the body. The relaxation of the muscles and tissue helps reduce the compression of the nerves, and in response the nerves will get better nutrients and operate more efficiently.
The relaxation response
The relaxation response helps decrease the amount of stress that is built up in your body. During this response, the heart rate, breathing rate , and blood pressure reduces. This response also helps the serotonin, a chemical in the body that positively effects thoughts and emotions .
Overall , massage therapy is beneficial in many ways , and the massage therapists at Nottinghill Family Wellness Center will gladly help you achieve both the mechanical and relaxation responses.
