How is massage helpful?
Massage therapy helps the body in so many ways; It relaxes the muscle tissue and nervous system, which may lead to decreased nerve compression, increased joint space improved range of motion, a more restful mind and peaceful state. This may lead to reduced pain and improved function. Massage therapy also improves circulation, which enhances the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to muscle cells and helps remove waste products. These circulatory effects of massage may have value in the treatment of some inflammatory conditions, such as arthritis or edema. Massage therapy also induces a relaxation response in the parasympathetic nervous system, which lowers the heart rate, improves digestion, respiratory rate, and blood pressure; boosts the immune system; and generally decreases the physical effects of stress.
