There is no denying the power of body and energy work! Regardless of the adjectives we assign to it (pampering, rejuvenating, therapeutic care, or specialized treatment) or the reasons we seek it out via a luxurious retreat, stress relief, or pain management, massage therapy can be a powerful ally in your healthcare regimen and prevention or treatment for disease.
While taking the appropriate measures to recalibrate your lifestyle by eliminating anxiety in this fast paced world might be idealistic, massage can, without a doubt, facilitate positive results that can impact your overall health and wellness. Massage offers balance from stresses by activating the parasympathetic nervous system, a division of the autonomic nervous system. When the parasympathetic nervous system is activated, the body conserves energy as it slows the heart rate, increases intestinal gland activity, and relaxes sphincter muscles in the gastrointestinal tract. This is why the parasympathetic nervous system is well known as the rest, recovery, and digestive system.
Swedish, Esalen, Hot Stone, and Aromatherapy massages are fantastic for combating psychological stress, based on their healing properties through light to medium pressured muscle manipulation. These massages increase blood circulation which carry nutrients and minerals all over the body, as well as hormonal release trigger of serotonin, that can provide numbing relief to the brain, similar to the effects of sugar, while sorting out resolutions that stem from multiple lines of emotional stressors.
Bodywork and Myofascial Release Therapies help to address the fascia that encapsulates and holds together the muscles arteries, bones, and organs. Through release work by manipulation of the fascia that connects and surrounds muscles, tension or trauma in one part of the body that is affecting another part of the body can be treated and minimize the effects of inflammation, tension and trauma for total balanced healing.
