  • Benefits of the systems of the body

Circulation –During massage, the amount of blood pumped to  the heart is increased due to the expansion of the capillaries. This causes a  temporary reduction in systolic, and diastolic blood pressure, as well as a  slight increase in the heart rate.

Digestive System – One of the primary functions of the  digestive system is to remove waste and toxins from the body. However, stress  and poor eating habits can prohibit this system from working efficiently,  resulting in indigestion, bloating, and constipation. Massage can improve the  functions of the digestive system and relieve these symptoms by stimulating  peristalsis, the spontaneous massage action of the intestines.

Emotions – The negative emotions we sometimes store inside  can lead to tension in the muscles, which can be alleviated through the  movements of massage. The counter pressure on the muscles dissipates tension,  freeing it to be converted into energy.

Joints – Massage can soothe joint pain caused by injury,  inflammation, and every day exertion by promoting increased blood flows to the  affected areas.

Lungs – Breathing can be greatly improved through massage of  the chest, shoulders, and back. Reducing tensions in these areas can assist in  the removal of congestion from the lungs, aiding respiratory conditions.

Lymphatic System – The lymphatic system is a part of the  body which helps fight infection. As such, its efficiency of operation plays a  vital role in overall health. Through massage, congestion in the lymphatic  system may be eased, improving this system’s overall effectiveness, and  strengthening the body’s ability to fight infection.

Muscles – One of the most common reasons for getting a  massage is relief of muscle tension. Massage releases built up tension from  tight muscles, enabling them to once again work efficiently.

Nervous System – The nervous system assists in the  regulation of all other systems of the body. Through massage the nervous system  is calmed, allowing better communication with the organs, helping them to  operate more effectively.

Skin – During massage, perspiration may be increased,  thereby removing additional toxins from the body.
