why massage is good for you
Massage is always helpful if it is done in a way that is appropriate for that particular individual. The reason we say that is because massage enhances two of the main functions of the body, which are the delivery of nutrients to the trillions of cells in the body, and the elimination of waste products from the trillions of cells in the body. The blood and lymph fluid systems facilitate this crucial delivery and elimination activity, upon which all of life depends.
Massage aids this process by dilating blood vessels and relaxing muscles, which improves the flow of life-giving blood, and the flow of cleansing lymph fluids throughout the body.
As a result, many good things start to happen. “Fatigue” products like lactic acid and other harmful deposits are eliminated from the muscles and joints. Recovery time is dramatically reduced. Inflammation and swelling can be lessened. The body is more limber and supple. Muscle tone is improved because of better nutrient delivery. The nervous system is relaxed. For people or animals that are forced to remain inactive because of injury, illness or age, massage can be a mild form of exercise for their muscles and joints.
This all happens because of better nutrient delivery and better waste elimination from all the cells of the body.
