Are you feeling stressed? Need to unwind yourself? Full Body Massage is an ideal approach to get unwind when you experience the awful weekdays. Massage is a procedure done by experts, where mind and body become one, in an astounding yet pleasing environment. Regular Massage nurtures inner well-being and healthy lifestyle.
But what most people don’t know is that while you might be in a state of total relaxation your body is going into full activation mode during a massage. A massage stimulates your nervous system; wakes up your muscles, organs, and glands; moves blood and lymph fluid, and gets multitudes of cells to produce and release chemicals and hormones. Your body needs a massage to renew itself and reverse the effects of stress.
Boost Fluid Circulations: Full Body Massage helps in boosting the blood circulation, which gives health benefits like increase in soft, smooth, well hydrated, glowing skin, better elimination of toxins and proper functioning of internal organs. Did you know your bones also have a blood supply and receive the same advantages from massage as your muscles? Blood flow brings calcium and other minerals to your bones to support their strength and function, so your skeletal system receives a major boost from massage.
Releases Muscle Tension: Muscles get tight in some areas due to some reasons (Stress, Minor Injuries, Overuse). Full body massage helps release that tightness in the body without pain and makes your body flexible. Massage also helps in relieving tiredness, pain and rejuvenate the body. Your muscles are like sponges – when they contract, blood and lymph fluid are squeezed out, and when they relax fresh blood enters bringing fresh nutrition, oxygen, and immune cells. Increased blood supply also accelerates the removal of lactic acid and other products of muscle metabolism that contribute to cramps, muscle fatigue, and DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness). Your massage therapist may also incorporate stretching and range of motion movements into the massage, which mobilizes the joints and places beneficial tension on your muscles, ligaments, and tendons.
Prevents Asthma: Full body massage can lose the respiration muscle/lungs and expands lung capacity. Regular body massage improves respiratory function and prevents asthma from worsening. Your massage therapist may ask you to take a deep breath at the start of the massage. Unrestricted breathing is one of the fastest roads to stress reduction, and your first breath on the massage table may become a sigh of relief. In addition to the diaphragm, there are muscles in your ribs, chest, and neck that assist breathing.
Improves Posture: It can improve posture by softening the tissue, which helps to reduce rigid and tight body muscle.
Relieves Eyestrain: Massage around the head and eye helps to improve eyesight and avoid redness or irritation, dry or watery eyes.
Improves Sleep: Massage helps body and soul to relax, rejuvenate from the stress, tensions and pressures.
Fast healing process: Inner injuries can heal fast with Body Massage. Deep Tissue Massage is an ideal massage, which helps to increase blood flow, decreases joint swelling and loosening torn tissues.
Skin Benefits: The slight friction of your massage therapist’s hands along with the massage lotion and oil causes gentle exfoliation, allowing fresh skin cells to emerge. Full Body Massage helps to remove dead skin cells from your body, removing dullness and bringing fresh skin to the surface, regenerate new tissues and cells, which helps in reducing the appearance of the scars and stretch marks. Oil Massage moisturizes the body.
Nervous system relaxation: As you relax, your nervous system enters a “rest and digest” mode. If you have areas of pain and tension in your body, it’s possible that they are the result of pressure on nerves caused by tight muscles, and massage may relieve it. A relaxed nervous system means that hormone production will balance out. Production of stress hormones such as corticosteroids (LDL) decreases, as “feel good” hormones like endorphins increase. Hormones that regulate sleep/wake cycles, menstrual cycles, immune cells, blood sugar, and even how much food you eat, all react positively to the relaxation that accompanies a full-body massage.
Lymphatic detox: The lymphatic system is crucial to balance the fluid and the function of your immune system. Lymphatic vessels parallel blood vessels throughout your body and large groups of lymph nodes are found in the neck, armpits, and groin. As your massage therapist works on flushing blood through muscle and tissue, they are also draining the lymphatic system, where the lymph nodes filter out dead cells, waste products, and possible pathogens. Sluggish lymph flow contributes to fluid retention, and draining the lymphatic system may reduce edema in certain parts of the body.
A healthy heart: A full-body massage is good for your heart as well. The vasodilation produced by massage increases your venous return which, in turn, increases blood flow and delivery of oxygen to all your organs. Your entire cardiovascular system relaxes and circulation throughout your body improves. Activation of the parasympathetic nervous system’s “rest and digest” mode helps regulate blood pressure and heart rate.
Digestive well-being: Stress takes a toll on the digestive system, and a full-body massage can have a very healthy effect on how your body process food and nutrients. The parasympathetic nervous system regulates your digestion, producing needed chemicals (like saliva, gastric juice, and insulin) and stimulates peristalsis, which moves food through your intestines. Classic Swedish massage includes an optional abdominal massage that acts directly on your large intestine to regulate the final stages of digestion. When food moves smoothly through the digestive system your stomach, gallbladder, pancreas, and intestines work together for maximum nutrient absorption, which supports your overall well-being.
