Why Do You Need To Massage

Massage is the kneading and stroking of the body's soft tissues - the skin and muscles - with varying degrees of pressure.
What does it do?
Gentle massage
affects the nervous system through nerve endings in the skin, stimulating the release of endorphins, the body's natural 'feel good' chemicals, to help induce relaxation and a sense of well-being, to relieve pain and reduce levels of stress chemicals such as cortisol . It helps reverse the damaging effects of stress by slowing heart rate, respiration and metabolism and lowering raised blood pressure.
Stronger massage
stimulates blood circulation to improve the supply of oxygen and nutrients to body tissues and helps the lymphatic system to flush away waste products. It eases tense and knotted muscles and stiff joints, improving mobility and flexibility.
The most common massage techniques :
effleurage, a light, firm and gentle stroking;
petrissage, firm kneading and rolling of the tissues;
frottage, or friction, deep direct pressure to release muscle tension.
Even though some people still regard it as a "self-indulgent luxury", massage in reality brings alot of benefits namely:
1.It promotes Emotional Balance
2.Relaxation and Rejuvenation
3.Detoxify the Body
4.Improved Digestion
5.Improved Mobility
6.Improved Sleeping Pattern
7.Improved Blood Circulation
8.Improved Skin Tone.
