Massage Benefits

Physical level

  • Massage helps to relax the nervous system and decrease stress levels, tension and muscle spasms release, allowing for deeper breathing.
  • Massage helps to reduce blood pressure and increase circulation.
  • When muscles are too tense, circulation slows, reducing the absorption of nutrients and slows the removal of waste and toxins. This weakened circulation causes illness, slows healing and leads to problems involving the structure and function of the body.
  • The lymphatic system is aided by massage to excrete wastes produced by the body's metabolism.
  • Massage helps to release waste and toxins from the body, such as lactic acid and helps to create a greater relaxation, improving the physiology and psychology of the body.
  • Massage increases ease of movement and flexibility, enhances all the systems of the body, such as the circulatory, nervous and immune areas resulting in better health, physically as well as in quality.

Mental and Emotional

  • Massage reduces mental stress, calming the mind, allowing for clearer thinking and a relaxed state of alertness.
  • Massage also allows the body to experience an ease of emotional expression, a sense of well-being, an increase in energy flow, reducing anxiety and brings a balance and integration of mind and body (as the mind affects the body and vice a versa).
  • This can help to reduce stress, which is probably the most valuable asset to everyone as it is increasingly believed that 80-90% of all disease is stress related.
  • Massage effectively lowers stress and increases relaxation, allowing your internal energy to flow freely and easily, improving healing and well being.
The object of massage is to disperse the effete matters found in the muscles and not expelled by exercise
Avicenna (Arab philosopher and physician)
