31 Reasons You Should Get Regular Massages

Massages aren't just for relaxation

While most people understand how massage can benefit muscles, internal organs can also benefit from massage therapy as they share neurological pain pathways with the bones, nerves, and muscles.
 
Massage therapy causes physiological changes in your body through both mechanical and relaxation response. Together, these natural responses produce both emotional and physical benefits.
 
The relaxation response of the body is an involuntary, yet predictable response of the central nervous system.
 
Mechanical response are the physical effects that happen to the body.
 
The mechanical response of the body to massage is the increase in lymph and blood circulation, as well as the relaxation and normalisation of the muscles, tendons, ligaments, and other soft tissues in the body. This releases pressure on the nerves.
 
Improved circulation improves the delivery of fresh oxygen and nutrients to the cells of the body, improving your health.
