Massage has been practiced for centuries and is one of the oldest kinds of health care available today. In fact, manuscripts and artwork from all over the world have shown people being massaged. If massage therapy has been around for that long–and is still being used today– it has to mean something, right?
Massage therapy is one of the simplest healthcare practices available, and can help encourage the body’s natural healing process through stroking, kneading and hitting the body with an understanding of the principles of human anatomy.
How Is Massage Therapy so Powerful?
All massage techniques revolve around touch, which is an essential sensation connected to comfort, love and emotion. Children and young animals need to be touched and stroked in order to feel loved and grow strong, and touch has been linked to stress-relief and relaxation in adults as well. When a soothing touch from massage techniques is applied to the skin, it sends a message to the brain to relax the body and release endorphin–which is the body’s natural painkillers.
Stroking and contouring the muscles and tissues of the body also help get rid of any stiffness or tension that is stored in the body to improve flexibility and movement. Massage also helps trigger the lymphatic system to boost the immune system and get rid of toxins in the body. Because everyone reacts to stroking sensations and relaxing touches differently, there are a variety of different massage therapies offered and recommended to each patient.
