Massage therapy aims to relieve pain by loosening up tight muscles, improving range of motion, and calming down the affected muscles and the body as a whole. Massage also increases the flow of nutrients and oxygen to the damaged tissues by promoting circulation to the affected or injured muscles. As a result, the muscles and joints become less stiff and swollen, and their flexibility improves, which in turn helps to alleviate pain.
Drink a lot of water after your massage! It’s water that aids in the body’s ability to flush out the toxins. The lymphatic system and blood circulation are both aided by massage. To do its job of delivering oxygen and nutrients to your muscles, organs, and other tissues, your blood must contain some water.
After a massage, congested blood vessels open up, allowing waste products from the body’s internal organs to be expelled. Hands-on pressure helps move blood through clogged and damaged areas of the body, which is the most important benefit of a massage. New blood flows into tissues as a result of the pressure being released. Lactic acid is also flushed from the muscles by the squeezing, twisting, and pulling of massage. Because of this, the circulation of lymph fluid is boosted, which removes metabolic waste products from the body’s tissues and organs. Lower blood pressure and improved overall body function are the result of this.
