How Does Massage Work?

The Circulatory System

Massage therapy is believed to improve circulation in the blood and lymph glands by bringing oxygen and other nutrients to the body's tissues. This improves cellular health and tissue function and aides in waste removal. It also increases absorption of excess fluids reducing swelling in soft tissue.

Tension in the muscle can cause severe nerve pain and spasms. Massage can help to reduce constriction and relieve pain by relaxing the muscle which reduces pressure on the nerve. This also allows them to operate more efficiently and reduces stiffness in muscles and joints.
