How Massage Works

Massage therapy works by relaxing the soft tissues and muscles of the body. As these structures relax, circulation improves, bringing fresh oxygen and nutrients to the affected tissues and helping to flush out toxins. Massage is also thought to induce a relaxation response and is believed to help lower your heart rate, respiratory rate and blood pressure. There is evidence that massage therapy not only increases the body’s production of pain-killing endorphins, but also decreases the physical effects of stress. Today, massage therapy is widely used to help alleviate pain, improve flexibility, reduce adhesions, and soothe injured, tired and overused muscles.
