Seeking Massage Therapy and improved workout practices are becoming now more popular every day, as more people are becoming aware of the health benefits. Massage has been practiced since 490 BC, over 2500 years as a healing practice, and also for healthcare. Common knowledge is that massage creates sensations of well being and relaxes the body. It is my objective to help you realize the other physiological benefits of massage.
How are Massages important
Massages are the only practical way to get relaxed and reduce stress, which is when hormone Cortisol is released in the body, and normally the only real way to reduce it is by sleeping. Massages stretch the muscles back to there normal positions, it reduces the flight or fight sensations that stress causes, and allows you to relax. Stress is the cause for almost all diseases and causes death, stress needs to properly managed, with therapy, techniques like breathing and more.
Why do you need Massages
Massage activates your body to get rid of wastes that are building up around and inside of you. The kneading and flowing strokes of massage therapy have this effect on the body. There are also tender points on your body that need special attention, like Trigger Point Therapy. These are mainly points that have not had sufficient blood flow, and will cause pain. Massage friction strokes and light stretching help the body to get the blood, with oxygen and nutrients to those tender sections and begin the healing process. The directed blood flow patterns with massage strokes on the body during massage therapy aid in waste removal of the toxins.
Massage has the effect of strengthen the skin, by massaging the muscles, and the collagen in the tissue, the massage therapy will reduce wrinkles in the skin, and minimize cellulite. Regular massage therapy sessions will dramatically improve your skin. Many people also like “deep tissue” or “sports massage” techniques, because of its benefits of releasing the build-up of lactose in the muscles, which reduces pain. The body appreciates also the long lasting effects. A deeper massage technique is especially appreciated by those with an athletic lifestyle.
There are also many other massage techniques that are beneficial to the body, which I have expertise for.
